The fifth medical school in the country, 
established in 1807, and the first to 
have a residency training program, the 
University of Maryland School of Medi- 
cine today is an academic health center 
that combines medical education, bio- 
medical research and service. While the 
school's tradition of excellence remains 
constant it's national reputation con- 
tinues to grow. 

The School of Medicine boasts the 
oldest building in the U.S. in contin- 
uous use for medical education, the 
meticulously restored Davidge Hall, 
completed in 1812. Yet the school's two 
main classroom and laboratory build- 
ings, the 14-story Bressler research 
tower and the nine-story Medical 
School Teaching Facility, were com- 
pleted within the last decade. 

The campus, as well, continues to 
grow. Construction of the new R Adams 
Cowley Shock Trauma Center and the 
new Veterans Administration Medical 
Center is under way. Plans for the near 
future include a state-of-the-art re- 
search tower and expansion of the na- 
tionally recognized Health Sciences 


In the traditional undergraduate curric- 
ulum, medical students concentrate on 
basic sciences for two years, then begin 
to apply this knowledge to clinical set- 
tings. Ample allowance is made for 
electives, independent study and spe- 
cial research projects. Throughout the 
four years, each student has a basic sci- 
ence and a clinical faculty advisor. 

The ties between the school and the 
hospital on campus enrich both medi- 
cal education and health care. All phy- 
sicians practicing at the University of 
Maryland Medical System/Hospital have 
School of Medicine faculty appoint- 
ments and are actively involved in the 

educational process in addition to su- 
pervising residency training for more 
than 400 postgraduate positions at the 
University Hospital and affiliated hospi- 
tals. The Medical System includes a 
747-bed teaching hospital, Cancer Cen- 
ter and Shock Trauma Center on 
campus, as well as the Montebello 
Rehabilitation Center and the James 
Lawrence Kernan Hospital off campus. 
Together, these serve as primary clinical 
training sites as well as a source of com- 
prehensive health care for the local 
community and the state. The school 
also has established clinical affiliations 
throughout the region, giving students 
unusual flexibility in clinical 

In an effort to nurture more interest 
in basic research and to meet the in- 
creasing demand for physician-scien- 
tists, the school now offers a combined 
MD/PhD program in 10 medical sci- 
ences and an MD/MS program in pre- 
ventive medicine. 

Although the schedule can be flex- 
ible, MD/PhD students typically com- 
plete the freshman and sophomore 
years of medical school, enroll as gradu- 
ate students for approximately two 
years, and then begin the clinical clerk- 

Medical students in the track lead- 
ing to the MD/MS in preventive medi- 
cine may complete the dual degree 
program in four or, more typically, five 
years. The fifth year is counted fully as 
one year of preventive medicine resi- 
dency training by the American Board 
of Preventive Medicine. 


Ranked among the top public medical 
schools in NIH research support, the 
level of research funding for the School 
of Medicine has risen dramatically in 
recent years in contrast to a leveling na- 
tional trend in grant support. Strong 
multi-departmental investigations in 
hyptertension, genetics, pharmacology, 
neurobiology and immunology place 
this institution at the forefront of bio- 
medical research. Major awards illus- 
trate the strength and scope of the 
research environment. 

• The Center for Vaccine Development 
began testing a new malaria vaccine 
in 1986 under a $6.7 million contract 
from the National Institute of Allergy 
and Infectious Disease. 

• The Stroke Center has received $3 
million in grants to continue its 
stroke data bank and clinical research 
in mood disorders following stroke as 
well as studies into the cause and 
basic mechanisms of stroke. 

• Physiologists seeking greater under- 
standing of the molecular basis of 
behavior recently identified PCP re- 
ceptors in the brain. Among depart- 
ments of physiology, the school's 
department is second nationally in 
fellowship support and ninth in the 
number of research grants awarded. 

• The Cancer Center, one of four U.S. 
facilities authorized to conduct Phase 
1, II and III drug trials, received a 
$2.8 million National Cancer Institute 
grant in 1986. 

• The Maryland Psychiatric Research 
Center received $1.2 million from the 
National Institute of Mental Health to 
establish one of two U.S. research 
centers for the study of schizophrenia. 

• Faculty members working at the Bal- 
timore Veterans Administration Medi- 
cal Center are testing anti-AIDS viral 
agents in mice under an $850,000 
NIH contract. 

Public Service 

Not only does the School of Medicine 
train a majority of Maryland's practic- 
ing physicians, it also provides leader- 
ship in health planning and policy 
making. For example, the Maryland 
Plan, a joint School of Medicine-Depart- 
ment of Health and Mental Hygiene 
venture, has revolutionized mental 
health care in the state and become a 
national model. Through an innovative 
residency program, the project has at- 
tracted board-certified psychiatrists to 
administrative and clinical positions in 
state mental hospitals and, in the pro- 
cess, significantly improved the quality 
of patient care. 

Tuerk House, the residential facility 
for the school's alcohol and drug abuse 
programs, has pioneered in the treat- 
ment and support of alcoholics for 
more than four decades. The new $3.7 
million Tuerk House, under con- 
struction, will have separate facilities 
for adult alcoholics and drug abusers 
and for adolescents. 

In addition to making house calls, 
family medicine specialists coordinate 
Supportive Care, a program that allows 
frail elderly and disabled Baltimoreans 
to remain in their own homes and 
avoid unnecessary placement in nursing 
homes. The interdisciplinary health and 
home care program is funded by the 
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. 

Pediatricians screen area children 
for developmental disabilities under a 
contract with the public school system, 
while genetics specialists counsel pro- 
spective parents in several remote areas 
of the state. 

The Department of Epidemiology 
and Preventive Medicine designs com- 
puter models to forecast welfare case- 
load and use, and operates the 
Maryland Cancer Registry under a 
contract with the state Department 
of Health and Mental Hygiene. 

Pathology faculty serve as "doctors 
on call" to the National Aquarium in 


The foundations of the School of Medi- 
cine date back to 17g9 , when Baltimore 
physicians organized the Medical So- 
ciety of Baltimore in an effort to train 
young physicians to succeed them as 
their numbers had been greatly dimin- 
ished following the Revolutionary War, 
and to prevent charlatans from practic- 
ing in the area. Members of the society 
began to train prospective physicians in 
their homes, lecturing on anatomy, sur- 
gery and chemistry. They soon peti- 
tioned the Maryland State Legislature to 
establish a college of medicine, on a 
firm basis and under the protection of 
the law. This request was approved on 
January 20, 1807, together with a lot- 
tery to raise money for a home for the 
fledgling "College of Medicine in 

Dr. John Beale Davidge, a physician 
trained in Scotland, became dean and 
took the chair in surgery. His founding 
faculty were James Cocke (anatomy and 
physiology), James Shaw (chemistry) 
and Nathaniel Potter (theory and prac- 
tice of medicine). From the beginning, 
there was a strong emphasis on bedside 
teaching. The first class of seven re- 
ceived clinical instruction at the Bal- 
timore Almshouse, a workhouse and 
infirmary for the poor. 

Determined that the school have its 
own home, Davidge, Shaw and Cocke 
bought land from John Eager Howard 
which was "quite some distance from 
town" to protect against unruly mobs 
who had demolished the doctors' first 
anatomical theater in violent opposition 
to the dissection of human cadavers. 
Davidge Hall was designed by Robert, 
Carey Long, Sr. modeled after the Pan- 
theon in Rome , and completed in 1812 . 
In addition to two expansive circular 
lecture amphitheaters, there are dissect- 
ing cubbyholes, secret stairways and 
h idden exits which afforded student s 
and professors safe passage from angry 

In 1823, the Baltimore Infirmary , 
forerunner of the University of Mary- 
land Hospital, was built opposite 
Davidge Hall. It was the first hospital 
founded by a medical school for the ex- 
press purpose of clinical instruction, 
and the site of the first intramural resi- 
dency program in the United States. Se- 
nior medical students lived in the 
hospital while helping to care for 

In curriculum development, the 
School of Medicine claims a long and 
proud tradition as a trend setter. The 
school was the first to recognize the 
value of the basic sciences and intro- 
duced the first preventive medicine 
course in 1833. In 1848 it became the 
first school to require anatomical dis- 
section, and six years later introduced 
compulsory courses in gross and micro- 
scopic pathology. Maryland was the 
first to establish chairs in the diseases of 
women and children (1867) and dis- 
eases of the eye and ear (1873). 

Mergers with the Baltimore Medical 
College in 1913 and the College of Phy- 
sicians and Surgeons in 1915 meant 
greatly expanded clinical facilities and 
faculty for the School of Medicine. 
Early in the twentieth century, Drs. 
James Rowland and Louis Douglas initi- 
ated off-site obstetrical care and home 
delivery, prenatal clinics and an Rh 
blood typing laboratory, all of which 
improved infant and maternal health 

The School of Medicine has had us 
share of medical breakthroughs, includ- 
ing in recent decades discovery of the 
thyrotropic hormone, the first success- 
ful antibiotic treatment of Rocky Moun- 
tain spotted fever, the first specific cure 
for typhoid fever and the successful 
treatment of diabetic keto-acidosis with 
low dose insulin. The Shock Trauma 
Center, which opened in 1961, has 
served as a worldwide model for 

emergency medical treatment. In 1967 
the school began one of the first for- 
malized residency programs in family 

The rest, of course, is not yet his- 
tory, but certainly history in the 

The Campus and Beyond 

The School of Medicine is part of one of 
the country's first centers for profes- 
sional education and research. The 
school shares the 33-acre University of 
Maryland at Baltimore campus with the 
Dental School, the Schools of Law, 
Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work and 
Community Planning, the Graduate 
School and the University of Maryland 
Medical System/Hospital. Hope Lodge 
and the Baltimore Ronald McDonald 
House also share the campus, both of- 
fering low cost housing and a home- 
like atmosphere for patients and their 

Opportunities abound for faculty 
and students to join with other health 
and human service professionals in in- 
terdisciplinary study, informal dis- 
course and collaborative clinical 
practice and research. The Baltimore 
campus is located in the hub of one of 
the greatest concentrations of health 
care institutions, research facilities. 

government agencies and professional 
associations in the nation, offering stu- 
dents a wide selection of field 

In addition to professional oppor- 
tunities, the city of Baltimore — twelfth 
largest in the nation — offers a stimulat- 
ing environment in which to live and 
study. Several blocks from the campus 
is the nationally acclaimed Inner Har- 
bor area, where Harborplace, the Na- 
tional Aquarium, and the Maryland 
Science Center share an attractive wa- 
terfront with sailboats, hotels, restau- 
rants and restored and renovated 

As a cultural center, Baltimore offers 
a world-class symphony orchestra, sev- 
eral fine museums, libraries and profes- 
sional theater groups. For sports fans, 
Baltimore boasts Orioles baseball, Blast 
soccer and collegiate and club lacrosse. 
The nearby Chesapeake Bay offers un- 
paralleled water sports and the seafood 
for which the region is famous. 

Academic Information 


The University of Maryland is a mem- 
ber of the Association of American Col- 
leges and is accredited by the Middle 
States Association of Colleges and Sec- 
ondary Schools. The School of Medi- 
cine is accredited by the Liaison 
Committee on Medical Education, the 
accrediting body for the Association of 
American Medical Colleges and the 
American Medical Association. 


The University of Maryland School of 
Medicine is a participant in the Ameri- 
can Medical College Application Service 
(AMCAS). All requests for a place in 
the first-year class must be initiated by 
an AMCAS application. AMCAS ap- 
plication request cards can be obtained 
from AMCAS, Suite 310, 1776 Mas- 
sachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, 
DC 20036-1989 or the Committee on 
Admissions, University of Maryland 
School of Medicine, 655 West Baltimore 
Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201. In 
addition, they are usually available from 
the premedical advisory office at the 
undergraduate college. AMCAS applica- 
tion material is ready for distribution 
about mid-June of the year prior to the 
year the applicant wishes to enter medi- 
cal school. 

For the School of Medicine, the 
AMCAS application is the first of a two- 
stage application process and is due in 
Washington by December 1. The Com- 
mittee on Admissions thoroughly re- 
views the AMCAS application and, 
based on the information contained in 
it, determines whether the second stage 
(School of Medicine) application form 
can be sent. An application fee ($25.00) 
to the School of Medicine is sent only 

with the filing of the second stage ap- 
plication form which is due by Decem- 
ber 31. Every applicant either will be 
sent second stage application material 
or will be informed that the committee 
cannot continue the application 

The application form and support- 
ing credentials should be filed as early 
as possible in the application period. 
Please do not have supporting creden- 
tials sent prior to filing a second stage 

The applicant must assume respon- 
sibility for assuring that all required 
credentials and the completed applica- 
tion packet are filed with and received 
by the Committee on Admissions. 
Please check with the Admissions Office 
to ensure that all materials have been 

Applicants are expected to respond 
truthfully and completely to all ques- 
tions on the AMCAS and School of 
Medicine application forms. Any appli- 
cant who provides false or misleading 
information may be denied admission 
or, if enrolled before discovery of irreg- 
ularity in the application process, may 
be dismissed from the school. 

Early Decision Program 

The University of Maryland School of 
Medicine has an Early Decision Pro- 
gram for students whose first choice of 
medical schools is the University of 
Maryland. The Committee on Admis- 
sions interviews selected Early Decision 
applicants and makes a decision on 
these students before considering the 
regular pool of applicants. By applying 
for Early Decision, the highly qualified 
applicant avoids having to make nu- 
merous other applications. Applicants 
with marginal academic credentials are 
discouraged from applying through this 

The Early Decision applicant must 
apply only to this school by the 
AMCAS deadline of August 1. Appli- 
cants must provide all supplementary 
information by September 1. Interviews 
will take place between mid-August and 
late September. No one will be accepted 

without an interview. If offered a place 
by this school, the applicant cannot ap- 
ply elsewhere. All decisions for this 
program are made by October 1. 

The Committee on Admissions can 
make one of three decisions for each 
Early Decision applicant: 1) acceptance; 
2) rejection; or 3) placement into the 
regular applicant pool for review at a 
later time. Each applicant will be noti- 
fied promptly of the Committee on Ad- 
missions' decision so that those not 
accepted through this program can ap- 
ply elsewhere. 

Early Decision Program applicants 
cannot apply to any other medical 
school until they are notified that they 
have not been accepted through the 

Applicant Selection Criteria 

Academic achievement, extracurricular 
activities, personal characteristics, rec- 
ommendations from the premedical 
committee or college instructors, scores 
on the Medical College Admissions Test 
(MCAT) and personal interview all are 
considered in evaluating an applicant. 
Academic achievement and/or high 
MCAT scores do not in themselves en- 
sure acceptance. Of significant concern 
to the Committee on Admissions are 
the applicant's character, personality 
and potential to perform as a medical 
student and as a future physician. 
Communication ability, personal integ- 
rity, emotional maturity and stability, 
motivation, interpersonal skills, and in- 
terests and activities outside the class- 
room are evaluated carefully. 

Applications from persons with out- 
standing credentials from other areas of 
the United States and Canada are wel- 
come and will receive all possible con- 
sideration. Preference in the selection 
process is given to residents of the state 
of Maryland. Applications can be pro- 
cessed only from United States and 
Canadian citizens or from persons in 
this country on a permanent resident 
visa. Occasionally an applicant residing 
in the United States holds a visa permit- 
ting him/her to live in the United States 
indefinitely and to establish residency 
in one of the states. Applications are ac- 
cepted from these individuals. Those on 
a time-limited visa, such as a student 
visa, are not eligible to apply, but if 
highly qualified, may write to the Ad- 
missions Committee (after applying 
through AMCAS) and request 

Admission to First Year 

The student should plan a four-year 
curriculum with a suitable arts or sci- 
ence major leading to a bachelor's de- 
gree. The Committee on Admissions 
encourages applicants to pursue a 
course of study that is rigorous, schol- 
arly and focused on areas that are intel- 
lectually challenging and interesting to 
the applicant. The Committee on Ad- 
missions seeks to admit students with 
diverse academic backgrounds 

A minimum of 90 semester hours of 
acceptable college credit is required, ex- 
clusive of physical education and mili- 
tary science. This must be earned in 
colleges of arts and sciences whose 
names appear on the current list of Ac- 
credited Institutions of Higher Educa- 
tion as compiled by the National 
Committee of Regional Accrediting 
Agencies of the United States. The only 
courses accepted are those which are 
approved for credit towards a degree by 
the university or college attended. 

Successful completion of the follow- 
ing courses and credits is required be- 
fore registering for medical school: 

Semester Hours 
Biological sciences 8 

Inorganic chemistry 8 

Organic chemistry 6 

General physics 8 

English 6 

No more than 60 hours can be ac- 
cepted from accredited junior colleges 
and then, only if these credits are vali- 
dated by a college offering a Bachelor of 
Arts or Science degree. Advanced place- 
ment credits for science courses taken 
in high school may be accepted if the 
applicant's college (which grants the 
bachelor's degree) has given college 
credit for those courses. Other excep- 
tions may be granted at the discretion 
of the Committee on Admissions. 

Selected students entering the 
School of Medicine from colleges which 
usually grant a baccalaureate degree af- 
ter the successful completion of the first 
year of medicine are responsible for: 
(1) providing a certificate from the col- 
lege or university certifying eligibility 
for this degree; and (2) meeting all re- 
quirements of the School of Medicine 
for advancement to the second year. 

A letter of evaluation is required 
from the undergraduate premedical 
committee for those applicants still en- 
rolled in or recently graduated from 
undergraduate college. If there is no 
premedical committee, letters are re- 
quested from three course instructors 
When letters from any other sources are 
sent, permission to use these instead of 
letters from course faculty must be 
granted by the associate dean for ad- 
missions. These letters should be only 
from persons who can evaluate the ap- 
plicant's accomplishments, productivity 
and character objectively and critically. 
All letters of evaluation should be sent 
directly to the Committee on Admis- 
sions. They are not to be sent to 

Each applicant's credentials are eval- 
uated by the Committee on Admissions 
to determine if an interview is to be 
granted. All interviews are conducted at 
the University oi Maryland School of 
Medicine. These interviews are sched- 
uled in advance bv invitation. 

It is recommended that the MCAT 
be taken within five years of anticipated 
matriculation. It must be taken no later 
than the fall of the year prior to en- 
trance. Applicants should write to the 
American College Testing Program, P.O. 
Box 414, Iowa City, Iowa 52240, for 
further information and registration 
forms, or to the Committee on 

In the selection process, the Com- 
mittee on Admissions must use as the 
applicant's residency status that which 
is in effect on the last day applications 
can be received (December 31). The Of- 
fice of Admissions and Registrations (a 
central campus office), University of 
Maryland at Baltimore, 621 West Lom- 
bard Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201; 
(301) 328-7480, is responsible for all 
decisions regarding residency. All ques- 
tions, complaints and appeals regarding 
residency status should be directed to 
that office, not to the Office of Admis- 
sions for the School of Medicine. Non- 
residents who matriculate here should 
plan on maintaining that status 
throughout the four years of medical 
school Current standards for re- 
classification to in-state status are 
rigorous and anticipated changes in 
policy may make reclassification more

Advanced Standing 

Students who have attended medical 
schools in the United States are eligible 
to file application for admission to the 
second- and third-year classes only. Ap- 
plication must be made no later than 
May 1 of the desired year of admission. 
Applicants for advanced standing must 
meet all of the current first-year en- 
trance requirements in addition to pre- 
senting acceptable medical school 
credentials and a medical school record 
based on courses that are equivalent to 
similar courses in this school. This in- 
cludes taking the MCAT examination 
and satisfying the undergraduate pre- 
requisites. Applicants for admission 
with advanced standing to the year III 
class also are required to take Part I of 
the National Board Examinations. 

No student who has been dismissed 
from any medical school will be con- 
sidered, unless his/her former dean 
submits a letter addressed to the Com- 
mittee on Admissions confirming that 
the student has been reinstated in good 
standing and is eligible for promotion. 
No student can be considered who is 
not eligible for promotion at the time of 

Persons who already hold the de- 
gree Doctor of Medicine cannot be 
admitted to the medical school as can- 
didates for that degree from this univer- 
sity. This is true for both advanced 
standing and first-year applicants. 

Citizens of the United States who 
are studying medicine in foreign medi- 
cal schools may apply for admission to 
the year III class only. Application must 
be made no later than May 1 of the year 
of desired admission. Applicants for ad- 
vanced standing must meet all of the 
first-year entrance requirements, in- 
cluding the MCAT examination and 
undergraduate prerequisites, and sub- 
mit acceptable medical school creden- 
tials as well as a medical school record 
based on courses equivalent to similar 
courses in this school. In addition, they 
must take the Medical Sciences Knowl- 
edge Profile (MSKP) test. Students in 
foreign schools are no longer permitted 
to take Part I of the National Board Ex- 
aminations. Applications for the MSKP 
must be made to:

Grades and Promotion 

The final grades for all courses in all 
four years should be recorded as 

A (Excellent^ 
B (Very Good) 
C (Satisfactory* 
D (Unsatisfactory*! 
F (Failing) 

Inc This designation is used only 
when mitigating circumstances 
(e.g., illness, unavoidable ab- 
sence) have prevented the stu- 
dent from completing the 
course on time. It is to be 
viewed as a nonprejudicial en- 
try on the student's record; the 
grade "Inc" remains on the offi- 
cial student transcript. 
An award of "Honors" is given to a 
student who receives a final grade of 
A" and performs an additional schol- 
arly effort that is clearly outstanding. 
In addition to the final objective 
grade and the Honors category, the stu- 
dent's overall performance is evaluated 
subjectively Appropriate evaluation 
forms are designated for this purpose. 

Established rules for advancement 
and dismissal during all four years have 
been approved by the faculty and stu- 
dent body representatives of the School 
of Medicine Council. All regulations re- 
lated to grading, advancement and dis- 
missal are included in the Academic 
Handbook given to all entering students 
at orientation. 

The faculty reserves the right to de- 
termine whether a student may with- 
draw, repeat, advance or graduate on 
academic or moral and personal 
grounds, including traits of character. 

Disclosure of Student 

In accordance with "The Family Educa- 
tion Rights and Privacy Acts of 1974" 
(PL 93-380), popularly referred to as 
the "Buckley Amendment,'' disclosure 
of student information, including finan- 
cial and academic, is restricted. Release 
to anyone other than the student re- 
quires a written waiver from the stu- 
dent A full policy statement may be 
found in the current VMAB Student 
Handbook issued to all incoming 

Equal Opportunity 

The University of Maryland, in all its 
branches and divisions, subscribes to a 
policy of equal educational opportunity 
for men and women of all races, creeds 
and ethnic origins. The school has the 
objective of securing a broad racial, sex- 
ual and ethnic balance in its enroll- 
ment To achieve this objective it gives 
every consideration to minority student 

Unethical Conduct 

In order to matriculate and or graduate, 
students must be of good moral charac- 
ter, consistent with the licensure re- 
quirements of the state of Maryland for 
physicians, and must demonstrate 
character traits consistent with compe- 
tent performance as a physician. The 
school reserves the right to dismiss or 
fail to graduate any student whose ac- 
tions and overall academic perfor- 
mance, including clinical performance, 
do not demonstrate good moral charac- 
ter and ability to function effectively as 
a physician. Such action may be taken 
notwithstanding a student's compliance 
with standards for advancement and 
graduation set out in the School of 
Medicine Grading Policy. 

Salary and Employment 

Students admitted to the University of 
Maryland School of Medicine can be as- 
sured of remunerative employment after 
satisfactory completion of the course of 
study and receipt ot the degree. Doctor 
ot Medicine. A high percentage of grad- 
uates enter the practice of medicine al- 
ter completion of residency training. 
There appears to be a moderate excess 
of physicians in some disciplines of 
medicine and in some geographic areas. 
However, the overall need for persons 
holding the MD degree is such that all 
graduates of the School of Medicine 
may expect a satisfactory income.

Determination of 
In-State Status 

An initial determination of in-state sta- 
tus for admission, tuition and charge- 
differential purposes will be made by 
the university at the time a student's 
application for admission is under con- 
sideration. The determination made at 
that time, and any determination there- 
after, shall prevail in each semester until 
the determination is successfully chal- 
lenged prior to the last day available for 
registration for the forthcoming semes- 
ter. A determination regarding in-state 
status may be changed for any subse- 
quent semester if circumstances warrant 

In those instances where an enter- 
ing class size is established and where 
an application deadline is stated, in- 
state conditions for admissions must be 
satisfied as of the announced closing 
application date. 

Petitions for review of eligibility and 
questions concerning the university 
policy should be directed to the Divi- 
sion of Admissions and Registrations, 
University of Maryland at Baltimore, 
621 West Lombard Street, Baltimore, 
Maryland 21201. 

Students classified as in-state for ad- 
mission, tuition and charge-differential 
purposes are responsible for notifying 
the Division of Admissions and Regis- 
trations, in writing, within 15 days of 
any change in circumstances which 
might affect their classification at the 
Baltimore city campus.

the time of registration to obtain a hospital insurance waiver. Rates are subject to 

***Student liability (malpractice) insurance is required of all students. 
****Rate based on 10-month year. Transient rates available for summer. 


The application and/or matriculation fee 
partially defrays the cost of processing 
applications for admission and enroll- 
ment data in the professional schools. 
These fees are not refundable. 

The tuition charges meet a portion 
of the costs for the educational program 
and supporting services. 

The instructional resources fee is 
charged to provide funds for supplies, 
materials, equipment and other costs 
directly associated with the instruc- 
tional program. 

Student activities fees are used to 
meet the costs of various student ac- 
tivities, student publications and 
cultural programs. The Student Gov- 
ernment Association, in cooperation 
with the Dean's Office, recommends ex- 
penditure of the fees collected. 

A student health fee is charged to 
help defray the cost of providing health 
services which include routine exam- 
inations and emergency care. Accept- 
able medical insurance is required in 
addition to the student health fee. 

The supporting facilities fee is used in 
support of the expansion of various fa- 
cilities on campus that are not funded 
or are partially funded through other 

Diploma fees are charged to help 
defray costs involved with graduation 
and commencement. 

All checks and money orders 
should be made payable to the Univer- 
sity of Maryland for the exact amount of 
the actual bill. 

A service charge is assessed for dis- 
honored checks. It is payable for each 
check returned unpaid by the drawee 
bank because of insufficient funds, 
stopped payment, postdating, or if it 
has been drawn against uncollected

For checks from $50.01 to $100— 

For checks over $100— $20 

Late registration fees defray the cost 
of the special handling involved tor 
those who do not complete their regis- 
tration on the prescribed days. No di- 
ploma, certificate or transcript will be 
issued to a student until all financial 
obligations to the university have been 

The university reserves the right to 
make such changes in fees and other 
charges as may be necessary. 


To attend classes at the UMAB campus 
it is necessary to process an official reg- 
istration. All students are required to 
register each term in accordance with 
current registration procedures. The 
balance of tuition and fees is due and 
payable on the dates specified for regis- 
tration. Registration is not completed 
until all financial obligations are satis- 
fied. Students who do not complete 
their registration, including the pay- 
ment of their bill on the registration 
days will be subject to a late registra- 
tion fee. 

Courses taken concurrently with a 
UMAB registration at another campus 
or institution must have program ap- 
proval in advance by the appropriate 
UMAB officials. Off-campus registration 
forms are available in each dean's office 
and the Registrar's Office. 

Although the university regularly 
mails bills to advance-registered stu- 
dents, it cannot assume responsibility of 
their receipt. If any student does not re- 
ceive a bill prior to the beginning of a 
semester in which he or she has ad- 
vance-registered, it is that student's 

responsibility to contact Student Ac- 
counting, Administration Building, dur- 
ing normal business hours. 

Students who arena-register or ad- 
vance-register and subsequently decide 
not to attend UMAB must notify the 
Registrar's Office, Room 326, Baltimore 
Student Union, in writing, prior to the 
first day of instruction. If this office has 
not received a request for cancellation 
by 4:30 p.m. of the last day before in- 
struction begins, the university will as- 
sume the student plans to attend and 
accepts the financial obligation. 

After classes begin, students who 
wish to terminate their registration 
must submit an application for with- 
drawal to the Registrar's Office. 
Students are liable for all charges appli- 
cable at the time of the withdrawal 

If a satisfactory settlement or agree- 
ment for settlement is not made with 
the Business Office within ten days after 
a payment is due, the student is auto- 
matically barred from attendance at 
classes and will forfeit the other priv- 
ileges of the School of Medicine. 

Withdrawal and Refunds 

Students who wish to leave the School 
of Medicine at any time during the aca- 
demic year are required to file a letter of 
resignation with the dean. In addition. 
an Application for Withdrawal form 
bearing the proper signatures must be 
filed with the Registrar's Office. The 
student must satisfy the authorities that 
he or she has no outstanding obliga- 
tions to the school and must return his 
or her student identification card. 

If the above procedures are not 
completed, the student will not be en- 
titled to honorable dismissal and will 
forfeit the right to any refunds to which 
that student would otherwise be en- 
titled The date used in computing re- 
funds is the date the application for 
withdrawal is signed by the dean. 

Academic Standing. Students who 
voluntarily withdraw during an aca- 
demic semester will be given no credit. 
Students are not permitted to resort to 
withdrawal in order to preclude current 
or impending failures. Their standing 
on withdrawal will be recorded at the 
Registrar's Office. Students who with- 
draw from the medical school and later 
desire readmission must apply to the 
Committee on Admissions unless other 
arrangements have been made with the 
dean's written consent. 

Refunds. Students officially with- 
drawing from the school will be cred- 
ited for all academic fees charged to 
them less the matriculation fee, in ac- 
cordance with the following schedule 
from the date instruction begins: 

Two weeks or less 80 percent 

Two to three weeks 60 percent 

Three to four weeks 40 percent 

Four to five weeks 20 percent 

After five weeks percent 

Leaves of Absence. Students who are 
in good standing may be granted one 
year's leave of absence on request of the 
dean. Longer leaves can be arranged 
only under special circumstances with 
the exception of those students in the 
combined MD/PhD program. 

Required Equipment 

Dissecting Instruments. At the beginning 
of the first year, all freshmen must pos- 
sess a complete set of dissecting instru- 
ments similar to the ones on display in 
the bookstore. 

Microscopes. All freshmen also must 
provide themselves with a standard mi- 
croscope. All microscopes must con- 
form to the following specifications: 

1. Binocular 

2. 10X oculars (wide field oculars 
are recommended, but not 

3. Quadruple nose piece 

4. Four parfocal objective lenses:

Students are cautioned about purchas- 
ing used or odd-lot microscopes since 
some of the older instruments are in 
poor optical or mechanical condition. 
Second-hand microscopes must be ap- 
proved by the department and students 
should obtain approval prior to 

Based on the determination of fi- 
nancial need, first-year medical stu- 
dents may qualify for loan of a 

Other Equipment. By the second 
year, medical students are required to 
have an ophthalmoscope, otoscope, a 
blood pressure cuff and stethoscope. 
The estimated cost of these items, plus 
other essentials such as lab coats, is 
$400 to $450. 

Financial Assistance 

The University of Maryland School of 
Medicine's financial aid program is 
available to medical students who dem- 
onstrate financial need. Through a 
varying combination of grants, scholar- 
ships, long- and short-term loans and 
part-time employment, students may 
receive assistance in meeting educa- 
tional expenses. In addition to school 
resources, outside funding agencies 
make financial assistance available to 
qualified medical students. 

An application for financial aid 
must be submitted annually, preferably 
by February 15, to be considered for as- 
sistance during the following academic 
year. Entering students may request fi- 
nancial aid applications from either the 
Committee on Admissions or the Stu- 
dent Financial Aid Office. Students 
currently enrolled in the School of 
Medicine may obtain forms from: 
Student Financial Aid Office 
University of Maryland at Baltimore 
621 West Lombard Street 
Baltimore, Maryland 21201 
Student assistance is awarded on 
the basis of demonstrated financial 
need. Eligibility for financial aid is 
dependent upon the student maintain- 
ing good academic standing and full- 
time attendance. When determining the 
amount to be awarded, the financial aid 
committee considers the following: 

(1) the income, assets and resources ot 
the student and student's family; 

(2) support available to the student 
from nonuniversity sources; and (3) the 
costs reasonably necessary tor full-time 
attendance at the school. 

Renewal of financial aid for suc- 
ceeding years depends on annual sub- 
mission and review of a financial aid 
application, good academic standing, 
the student's continued financial need, 
and the availability of funds. A com- 
plete description of the procedures used 
to evaluate applications for aid, the stu- 
dent budgets used and various univer- 
sity, state and federal programs, can be 
found in the brochure "Financial Aid at

Dean's Scholarship. Funds provided 
the school are awarded primarily to 
nonresident students. 

Desegregation Grants. First-year mi- 
nority students who are Maryland resi- 
dents are eligible for these funds. 
Desegregation grants are normally used 
to reduce the amount of loan included 
in the financial aid award. 

Health Professions Loans. Medical 
students are eligible for loans equal to 
tuition plus $2,500 annually. Interest 
accrual at 9% and principal payments 
are deferred until one year after gradua- 
tion at which time both interest and 
principal payments begin. Both interest 
and principal may also be deferred for 
internships and residencies and for up 
to three years of service in the uni- 
formed services (including National 
Health Service Corps) and the Peace 

Medical Alumni Association. Interest- 
free loans are available. 

Work Study. The College Work- 
Study Program provides jobs for stu- 
dents who need financial aid and who 
must earn a part of their educational 
expenses. Jobs are arranged either on- 
or off-campus with a public or private 
nonprofit agency. Eligible students may 
be employed for as many as 20 hours 
per week. 

Private and Endowment Funds. From 
bequests and private donations, the 
School of Medicine has established pri- 
vate and endowment accounts to pro- 
vide fellowships, scholarships and loans 
tor students on the basis ol their aca- 
demic achievement and financial need 
The amounts of these fellowships, 
scholarships and loans vary and are 
awarded on an annual basis in accor- 
dance with school policy. 



The availability of support from 
each of the funds listed below is 
dependent upon the income generated. 
Moreover, since many of the funds are 
governed by specific provisions set 
forth by the donors, awards must be 
made accordingly.

Programs of Study 


Broadly stated, the education objectives 
of the School of Medicine are: 

• To educate students intensively and 
broadly enough for them to achieve a 
high level of professional competence 
and social awareness. 

• To introduce medical students to the 
concept of primary care and to pro- 
vide sufficient opportunities for them 
to develop the knowledge and skills 
necessary for the deliver}- of primary 

• To provide students at every level of 
training the opportunities to pursue 
areas of special interest for intellectual 
stimulation or career advancement. 

• To encourage the formation of a core 
of highly competent professionals 
who will practice medicine as gener- 
alists or specialists, teach full- or part- 
time, or continue to add to knowl- 
edge through research. 

In order to meet changing needs of 
graduate medical education and health 
care delivery, the curriculum may vary 
from year to year. A standing Curricu- 
lum Coordinating Committee, com- 
posed of year I, year II and clinical year 
faculty chairpersons, special course 
chairpersons, faculty members-at-large, 
and representatives of the student body, 
has the responsibility of monitoring and 
renewing the curriculum regularly and 
recommending changes whenever they 
are deemed necessary. 

First and Second Years. There are two 
four-month core sessions in each of the 
first two years. In January and June of 
both years (known as mimmesters>. 
students take a required minimum of 
eight elective freshman sophomore 
credits before advancing to the third 
year. These electives may be taken dur- 
ing any one of the four minimesters at 
the student's and advisor's discretion 
and as approved by the Electives 

During the freshman year, the 
following core courses are taught: Anat- 
omy (.including gross anatomy, histol- 
ogy and embryology') , Biochemistry. 
Behavioral and Social Science, Physiol- 
ogy and Biophysics (combined), Neuro- 
sciences (interdisciplinary). Genetics, 
and Biostatistics. In addition, during 
the freshman year interdisciplinary 
course. Introduction to Clinical Prac- 
tice, students are exposed to interview- 
ing techniques. Intimate Human 
Behavior, an interprofessional course 
under the aegis of the Office of Medical 
Education, is required of freshman 
medical students. 

During the sophomore year, stu- 
dents enroll in the following core 
courses: Microbiology, Pathology, 
Pharmacology and Experimental 
Therapeutics. Physical Diagnosis, Psy- 
chopathology, and Epidemiology and 
Preventive Medicine. Introduction to 
Clinical Practice continues in the soph- 
omore year and includes specialty phys- 
ical diagnosis and medical ethics There 
is continued emphasis on clinical cor- 
relation throughout the two years with 
combined instruction bv basic and 

clinical science faculty. This correlative 
teaching provides the medical student 
with the full spectrum of the basic sci- 
ence foundation and the clinical science 
presentation of disease states. Atten- 
dance in all small groups, including 
laboratories and discussion groups, is 
mandatory in both the freshman and 
sophomore years. 

Recently, time for independent 
study has been added to the first and 
second years. Training and certification 
in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) 
also is required before entry into the 
clinical years. 

Third and Fourth Years. The clinical 
war-, curriculum was recently revised. 
The two clinical years are viewed as a 
single unit with the student assuming 
progressive responsibility for patient 
care. The junior clinical experience 
consists of two 12-week rotations, one 

in Internal Medicine and one in Sur- 
gery; three six-week rotations in Pedi- 
atrics, Psychiatry, and Obstetrics and 
Gynecology; and two three-week rota- 
tions in Radiology, and Neurology. 
Students take all of these rotations 
according to individual schedules. The 
sum of these experiences provides a 48- 
week introduction to clinical science. 

A 36-week block follows that in- 
cludes a 20-week elective period during 
which the student may take eight weeks 
of electives off-campus. An additional 
eight weeks must be spent in a student 
internship in one of four clinical fields: 
medicine, surgery, pediatrics or family 
practice. Here the student has an op- 
portunity for primary patient care re- 
sponsibility over a prolonged period of 
time. These rotations are ottered at the 
University of Maryland Medical System/ 
Hospital and in approved affiliated 
hospitals. The third segment is a con- 
secutive eight-week experience in an 
ambulatory setting. These outpatient 
settings include internal medicine, pe- 
diatrics and family practice, with addi- 
tional experience in epidemiology and 
preventive medicine. Attendance in all 
course work in clinical areas is manda- 
tory. The current clinical curriculum 
frequently involves weekend atten- 
dance. In any additional free time, the 
student may audit available electives. 

The 84-week combined clinical 
years program provides a strong 
grounding in clinical science with a 
progressive opportunity for primary pa- 
tient care responsibility. The curricu- 
lum is designed to prepare the medical 
student for the increasing responsibility 
demanded by the specialty residency- 
programs adopted throughout the

Combined MD/PhD Programs 

Research in human disease requires in- 
vestigators with interests and training in 
both basic science and clinical medi- 
cine. The primary objective of the MD/ 
PhD Program is to train medical scien- 
tists. These individuals will differ from 
most basic scientists by having the 
clinical background necessary for the 
management and investigation of hu- 
man disease. Equally, the MD/PhD 
medical scientist will differ from most 
physicians by having extensive labora- 
tory experience and the scientific back- 
ground that can lead to the application 
of a basic scientific approach to studies 
of clinical problems. To achieve this 
goal, a flexible program of combined 
medical and scientific training is pro- 
vided to highly motivated students of 
superior research and academic poten- 
tial. This program utilizes fully the 
broad range of basic and clinical science 
opportunities that are available at the 
University of Maryland. 

The MD/PhD Program is offered 
through the Departments of Anatomy, 
Biochemistry, Biophysics, Epidemiology 
and Preventive Medicine, Microbiology 
and Immunology, Pathology, Pharma- 
cology and Experimental Therapeutics, 
Physiology, and the Division of Human 
Genetics as well as the Department of 
Biological Sciences at the University of 
Maryland Baltimore County. The 
School of Medicine also offers an MD/ 
MS in Preventive Medicine. 

The degree requirements for the 
combined MD/PhD and MD/MS pro- 
grams will be equivalent to those of the 
separate degree requirements for the 
Doctor of Medicine in the School of 
Medicine and the Master of Science or 
the Doctor of Philosophy in the Gradu- 
ate School of the University of Mary- 
land. It is anticipated that the MD/PhD 
degree can be completed within six to 
seven years. 

Although the schedule of training 
can be flexible, typically entering stu- 
dents complete the two preclinical years 
as regular medical students and receive 
graduate credit for many courses taken 
during this period. The students use 
mimmesters and summers to gain re- 
search experience in the basic science 
departments of their choice. Students 
are expected to "rotate" through the 
various laboratories in the selected 
graduate department in order to facili- 
tate the final choice of a thesis advisor. 

After the preclinical years, MD/PhD 
students enroll as full-time graduate 
students for approximately two years, 
taking required graduate courses and 
seminars, conducting research and 
focusing on dissertation research. Sub- 
sequently, they begin the clinical clerk- 
ships using elective time during the 
clinical years to complete PhD research. 
This sequence is general; a student may 
complete the program in a different se- 
quence, depending on the schedule de- 
veloped in consultation with the 
student's advisor. 

Applicants to the MD/PhD Program 
are required to meet the admissions re- 
quirements of the School of Medicine 
and the Graduate School of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. Qualified candidates 
are interviewed and selected by the 
MD/PhD Program Advisory Committee. 
Applications will be considered from 
qualified juniors or seniors at any ac- 
credited university, as well as from 
medical students currently enrolled at 
the University of Maryland. In addition, 
applications will be considered from 
students currently enrolled in a gradu- 
ate level program (i.e., MS, PhD) at the 
University of Maryland School of Medi- 
cine or other accredited universities. An 
application form is included in the 
medical school admissions packet. 

A small number of applicants, not 
to exceed three from each entering 
class, may be awarded a waiver of tui- 
tion (at the financial level of Maryland 
resident tuition) for a maximum of six 
vears. The waiver will be awarded 

based upon the student's academic ex- 
cellence. A stipend may be provided by 
the research sponsor during the PhD or 
MS in Preventive Medicine portion of 
the program.

Short Term Research 
Training Program 

The School of Medicine is committed to 
training physician-scientists. The school 
recognizes the value of maintaining the 
link between the treatment of patients 
and the science which enables patient 
care to advance. By bridging the two 
areas, the physician-researcher is in an 
ideal position to translate research into 
clinical application and patient prob- 
lems into laboratory investigation. 

In an effort to enhance student in- 
volvement in biomedical investigation, 
the school encourages students to par- 
ticipate in supervised research projects 
through the Short Term Research Train- 
ing Program (STRTP), which is sup- 
ported in part by a training grant from 
the National Institutes of Health. Major 
areas of research interest at the School 
of Medicine include: cancer and en- 
vironmental diseases; molecular biol- 
ogy; neuroscience; cancer; infectious 
and immunologic diseases; and endoc- 
rinologic and cardiovascular diseases. 
Approximately 80% of the research 
support at the School of Medicine is de- 
voted to work done in these broad 

Fellowships are awarded on a com- 
petitive basis and provide $200 per 
week for 8 to 12 weeks of full-time par- 
ticipation. These experiences are avail- 
able to incoming students during the 
summer before their freshman year, and 
to medical students during the summer 
between their first and second years or 
during their fourth year. STRTP funds 
are not available to students engaged 
in doctoral dissertation research or to 
students with alternative sources of 
research funding, except that the pro- 
gram may supplement some alternate 
sources. Students selected for the pro- 
gram participate in a series of seminars 
and a short course including research 
methodology and ethics. They also 
present their research to students and 
faculty during the summer and on 
Medical Student Research Day, which 
is held each spring. 

Travel awards are available to 
qualified participants by separate ap- 
plication to encourage students to 
attend and present their results at na- 
tional scientific meetings.

Graduate Programs 

The University of Maryland Graduate 
School, Baltimore, created in 1984 by 
the merger of graduate education and 
research administration and develop- 
ment of the University of Maryland's 
Baltimore and Baltimore County cam- 
puses, represents a milestone in gradu- 
ate education in Maryland. The linkage 
broadens the scope of graduate offer- 
ings in the region, enhances the col- 
lective research base and facilitates 
collaborative efforts that cross disci- 
plines in which each campus has 

The new University of Maryland

services, information systems/ 
operations analysis and intercultural 

The level of outside funding for re- 
search has risen dramatically in recent 
years with particular expansion of re- 
search taking place in the School of 
Medicine. Contract and grant awards in 
1986 totalled $47 million for the two 
campuses, a 22% increase over the pre- 
vious year, with the School of Medicine 
awarded $37.6 million of this total.

Program of Continuing 
Medical Education 

The University of Maryland School of 
Medicine is concerned with three 
phases in the education of physicians: 
undergraduate, graduate and postgrad- 
uate or continuing medical education. 
To fulfill its role in the last of these, the 
School of Medicine maintains a pro- 
gram of continuing medical education 
(CME) which offers substantive and 
accessible training to the states physi- 
cians. The CME Program is admin- 
istered by the assistant dean for 
continuing medical education and a 
full-time staff, with the assistance of a 
faculty advisory committee. The pro- 
grams offered are approved by the 
American Medical Association for credit 
in Category 1 (towards its Physician's 
Recognition Award) and by the Ac- 
creditation Council for Continuing 
Medical Education. To the greatest ex- 
tent possible, programs are structured 
around the educational needs of prac- 
ticing physicians. Both the type and 
content of the instructional programs, 
as well as their instructional design, are 
varied in order to satisfy the learning 
needs of as many physicians as possible. 
Courses and other educational activities 
sponsored by this program also can be 
used by physicians to meet the Mary- 
land requirements for relicensure.

The University of Maryland 
Medical System 

The University of Maryland Medical 
System is a private, nonprofit institu- 
tion comprised of the University of 
Maryland Hospital, the University of 
Maryland Cancer Center, and the Shock 
Trauma Center and the Institute of Psy- 
chiatry and Human Behavior. Estab- 
lished as a private institution in July 
1984, it was previously an agency of the 
state of Maryland. The Medical System 
is the primary clinical setting for the 
University of Maryland School of Medi- 
cine. It is dedicated to providing exem- 
plary health care for the people of 
Maryland, to preparing students and 
physicians in training for the practice of 
medicine and the allied health profes- 
sions, and to carrying out research to 
improve the quality of health care. 

Since its founding in 1823, the hos- 
pital has become a major tertiary care 
referral center which offers the full 
range of specialized medical and surgi- 
cal services. In recent years, as the 
number of health care facilities in urban 
centers has decreased, the Medical Sys- 
tem has assumed increasing responsi- 
bility for its surrounding community. 
As a result, more than 100,000 city resi- 
dents look to the University of Mary- 
land Medical System as their primary 
source of health care. 

The 747-bed hospital is one of the 
nation's busiest. In one year, it records 
approximately 23,000 inpatient admis- 
sions, 150,000 outpatient visits, nearly 
40,000 emergency room visits and 
2,000 births. Every day, nearly 5,000 
people pass through the hospital's 

doors. The senior medical staff — more 
than 600 physicians — is comprised of 
the clinical faculty of the School of 
Medicine who supervise training of the 
more than 400 graduate physician 
house officers as well as the medical 

Because of its combined professional 
and academic environment, many out- 
standing treatment programs and re- 
search facilities have been developed at 
the Medical System. The Shock Trauma 
Center of the Maryland Institute for 
Emergency Medical Services Systems 
and the University of Maryland Cancer 
Center are two prime examples. 

The Shock Trauma Center, linked 
with the Maryland Institute for 
Emergency Medical Services Systems, a 
statewide network of emergency com- 
munications, transportation and medi- 
cal care facilities, is second to none. It 
provides high-speed emergency service 
to nearly 2,000 critically injured per- 
sons each year — the most severe multi- 
ple trauma cases in the state — with an 
impressive 89% survival rate. A heliport 
adjacent to the hospital facilitates rapid 
transport of these patients from around 
the state. 

In the Cancer Center, collaboration 
between research scientists and research 
clinicians has resulted in notable efforts 
in treating breast, lung, and blood- 
related cancers. It was at the Cancer 
Center that researchers pioneered the 
freezing of a leukemia patient's own 
platelets for later use during relapses. 
The center's physicians work closely 
with other oncology departments 
within the hospital, tailoring the bal- 
ance among surgery, radiation, and 
anticancer drugs for each patient's opti- 
mal treatment plan 

The hospital's intensive care units 
serve seven medical specialties. It's neo- 
natal care nursery serves critically ill 
newborns airlifted from throughout 

An organ transplant service offers 
the latest surgical techniques for pa- 
tients suffering from kidney and pan- 
creatic diseases. The hospital recently 

installed new cardiovascular labora- 
tories which support the state's com- 
prehensive cardiology program for 
children and adults. The Stroke Data 
Bank, part of the Medical System's 
Stroke Center, is one of only four in the 
United States. The institution's neu- 
rosurgery division has attracted na- 
tional attention for its innovative 
techniques in the treatment of brain tu- 
mors. The high-risk pregnancy, multi- 
ple sclerosis and magnetic resonance 
imaging centers offer the most ad- 
vanced technology possible; the state's 
only pediatric dialysis unit opened at 
the Medical System in 1987. 

Coexistent with these technologies 
is the Medical System's commitment to 
providing alternatives to specialized 
medical care when appropriate. This is 
demonstrated by the presence of the 
University Health Center, an ambula- 
tory care facility that incorporates fam- 
ily practice, general adult medicine and 
several specialty services. Established in 
1984, it is located one block from the 
Medical System building. Ambulatory 
care also is provided in the hospital by 
separate emergency units for children 
and adults. 

The University of Maryland Medical 
System has grown both professionally 
and physically during the years. The 
move from century-old buildings to 
modern facilities brought active cooper- 
ation with many of the university's pro- 
fessional schools. Today, the Medical 
System is the training site for pharma- 
cists, social workers, dentists, nurse 
practitioners and other health profes- 
sionals and technicians. This inter- 
professional environment is a unique 
and valued characteristic of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Medical System. 



A broad spectrum of clinical oppor- 
tunities are available ranging from basic 
health care to complex medical prob- 
lems requiring expensive, highly spe- 
cialized facilities and staff. The majority 
of clinical training occurs at the three 
major affiliated hospitals: the University 
of Maryland Medical System, Mercy 
Hospital and the Baltimore Veterans Ad- 
ministration Medical Center. These are 
complemented by a network of affili- 
ated community and state hospitals. 

Crucial to medical care today are 
the community hospitals where most 
primary and secondary level health care 
problems are seen. Recognizing this, 
the medical school has developed a net- 
work of institution-to-institution at filia- 
tions with community hospitals to 
augment the educational experience at 
the undergraduate, graduate and 
postgraduate levels. These include 
Maryland General, St. Agnes, South 
Baltimore General and York (Pa.) Hos- 
pitals. Each has made a major commit- 
ment to being a health education 
center, firmly believing that the end 
result of a teaching environment is 
better patient care. Central to this are 
programs devoted to the continuing ed- 
ucation of all staff. Moreover, all have 
well-developed graduate education 
programs which attract interns and res- 
idents who wish to train in a com- 
munity hospital atmosphere. In most 
departments these hospitals have re- 
cruited full-time educators who hold 
academic appointments as full-time fac- 
ulty members and participate in ac- 
tivities of the medical school. 

A highly successful network of state, 
community and federal psychiatric fa- 
cilities has resulted in a widely ac- 
claimed statewide program for 
psychiatry training. In addition to the 
University of Maryland Medical Sys- 
tem's Institute of Psychiatry and Hu- 
man Behavior, affiliations integral to 

this success include the Walter P. Carter 
Center and Sheppard Pratt Hospital (a 
private psychiatric hospital); Spring- 
field, Spring Grove and Rosewood state 
mental health hospitals; and Perry Point 
VA Medical Center. 

Expanded clinical experience coor- 
dinated through the campus Geriatric 
Area Health Education Center, is of- 
fered at the John L. Deaton Medical 
Center, Harbor Health Care Center, the 
Waxter Center for Senior Citizens and 
the Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center. 

Clinical experience in rehabilitation 
is now available through the Montebello 
Rehabilitation Center, a state facility; 
the James L. Kernan Hospital for pa- 
tients with specialized orthopaedic 
problems, both affiliates of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Medical System, and 
the Fort Howard VA Medical Center. 

The present Baltimore Veterans Ad- 
ministration Medical Center is an active 
290 bed tertiary care inpatient hospital 
which also provides 170,000 primary 
and secondary care ambulatory visits 
yearly The close integration at the fac- 
ulty, resident and undergraduate levels 
in the disciplines of medicine, neurol- 
ogy, pathology and psychiatry will be 

augmented in the near future by de- 
partments of anesthesiology, radiology, 
radiation oncology and surgery as the 
VA prepares to move into a new facility 
immediately adjacent to the University 
Hospital and School of Medicine. Com- 
pletion date for the new 324-bed facil- 
ity is 1990. 

Area Health Education 
Center Program 

One of the University of Maryland at 
Baltimore's commitments to improving 
health care and delivery programs in 
primary care is the Area Health Educa- 
tion Center (AHEC) program. 

The AHEC program has been de- 
veloped to provide a comprehensive 
health care education program for un- 
dergraduate and graduate medical stu- 
dents, as well as for students from the 
other UMAB professional schools. 
AHECs are described as "multiple 
health education and training centers 

which attract students, interns and resi- 
dents to the several geographic areas, 
thereby attracting increased numbers of 
practicing physicians, encouraging de- 
velopment of health care facilities, 
providing for the training of additional 
numbers of allied health care profes- 
sionals and increasing capabilities for 
the existing program of graduate and 
continuing medical education and 
health training." 

There are two AHECs currently op- 
erating in the state, one rural and one 
geriatric. The first AHEC was estab- 
lished in Cumberland, a rural com- 
munity in Western Maryland. This 
center affords students the opportunity 
to understand and experience the valu- 
able and rewarding benefits of deliver- 
ing primary health care in a rural 
environment. The Geriatric AHEC, lo- 
cated in Baltimore City, serves the city's 
aged population through an inter- 
disciplinary approach to health care 

It is a matter of school policy that 
students are required to spend eight 
weeks of their senior year in clinical ed- 
ucation at an ambulatory site. Some 
students elect to spend this mandatory 
rotation at one of the AHEC sites. In 
addition, senior medical students may 
choose a rotation in either of these cen- 
ters as an elective in primary care. It is 
hoped that these experiences will en- 
courage students to consider practice in 
similar settings and that students will 
gain a firm appreciation of the special 
health needs of these populations. 

Office of Medical Education 

The Office of Medical Education serves 
all departments of the medical school as 
a consultative unit to the following 

Instructional design, implementa- 
tion and evaluation. 

Media systems design and hardware 
installation, e.g., operating room TV.

Classroom scheduling. 

The Office of Medical Education spon- 
sors four academic support services for 
medical students. These services are ad- 
ministered by the assistant dean for 
medical education (Room 1-008, BRB). 

Prematriculation Summer Pro- 
gram: This six-week program helps in- 
coming freshmen develop learning 
skills for coping efficiently and effec- 
tively with th" medical curriculum. 
Skill in understanding and memorizing 
information, preparing and taking ex- 
ams, and time management are de- 
veloped in a series of workshops during 
the first week. Students then practice 
applying these skills in learning se- 
lected topics during a simulation of the 
fall semester schedule. Up to 20 stu- 
dents attend on a voluntary basis. The 
program is supported by funds from 
the dean and the associate vice chancel- 
lor, Office of Student Affairs Coordi- 
nation. No tuition is charged for 

Learning Skills Orientation. This 
one-day workshop on learning skills, 
exam taking, and time management is 
presented just prior to freshman orien- 
tation. The workshop is open to the en- 
tire incoming class on a voluntary basis. 
Students pay for the workbook used to 
structure activities and provide imme- 
diate feedback on development of their 

Peer Tutoring Program: A peer tu- 
toring service is available during the 
school year to students in the basic sci- 
ence years who are experiencing aca- 
demic difficulty. Sophomore, junior, 
and senior medical students who have 
performed very well in these basic sci- 
ence courses serve as tutors. Most stu- 
dents in difficulty who request and 
obtain a tutor early in the semester pass 
the specific courses successfully. The 
peer tutoring service is provided at no 
charge to students. The tutors are paid 
through special funds provided by the 
administration to the Office of Medical 


Academic Counseling: Academic 
counseling on an individual basis is 
provided by the assistant dean for med- 
ical education. Students may be con- 
tacted directly on the basis of marginal 
performance on course exams, referred 
by faculty or other administrators, or 
make an appointment themselves to 
discuss ways of improving their aca- 
demic performance. There is no charge 
for this service. 

Illustrative Services: The depart- 
ment of illustrative services is a func- 
tioning component of the Office of 
Medical Education. The department 
supplies audiovisual aids to medical 
school faculty and staff for teaching, re- 
search and publication purposes. The 
primary services are illustration and 

Illustration. Services include com- 
prehensive renderings of surgical and 
clinical techniques, anatomical render- 
ings, statistical charts and other graphic 
representation. This section also han- 
dles simple and comprehensive design 
and finishing of flyers, brochures, pro- 
grams and posters; and layout and 
paste-up for offset printing and pho- 
tographic copying. In addition, they de- 
sign displays and exhibits. 

Photography. The division handles 
photographic copying of flat material 
such as written matter, x-rays, labora- 
tory tracings and data; photography of 
specimens, equipment set-ups, surgical, 
clinical and laboratory activities; and 
portraiture for school-related purposes. 
The division also does slide duplication 
and motion picture photography and 
acts as a collection station for commer- 
cial processing of color photography. 

Learning Resources Center and 
Clinical Media Library. The Learning 
Resources Center is a basic sciences me- 
dia library providing students with ac- 
cess to many self-instructional materials 
including video-tapes, slide-tapes, com- 
puter-assisted instruction, lecture tapes 
and reference books. A Clinical Media 
Library, located in the Frank C. Bressler 
Research Building, houses materials 
similar to those of the Learning Re- 
sources Center, but with a clinical 

Computer Learning Center (CLC): To 
make the benefits of information tech- 
nology available to medical students the 
School of Medicine staffs and maintains 
the Computer Learning Center (CLC). 
Classroom instruction is provided in 
addition to individual access to micro- 
computers and support of their use by 
medical students and students of other 
schools. The CLC is located on the sec- 
ond floor of the MSTF. 

Health Sciences Library 

The Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, 
Pharmacy, Nursing, and Social Work 
and Community Planning, as well as 
the Graduate School and the University 
of Maryland Medical System/Hospital 
are served by the Health Sciences Li- 
brary. It is one of the oldest medical 
college libraries in the country, dating 
back to 1813 when the University 
of Maryland purchased Dr. John 
Crawford's personal collection to form 
a medical library. 

The library currently serves as the 
Regional Medical Library for region II, 
an area covering ten southeastern and 
Atlantic states and the District of Co- 
lumbia. It contains more than 270,000 
bound volumes, with 3,100 current 
periodical subscriptions. The collection 
size ranks the library among the 15 
largest health sciences libraries in the 
United States. Its collection is more 
varied than that of most other medical 
libraries, with the subject scope encom- 
passing the basic biomedical and 
health-related sciences as well as the so- 
cial and behavioral sciences. Thus, in 
providing literature to support the 
teaching, research and health care pro- 
grams on the campus, the library 
makes available a wide range of mate- 
rials to the medical community. 

The Health Sciences Library has in- 
stalled one of the most advanced auto- 
mated library systems available in the 
country. Circulation services are com- 
pletely automated as is the catalog 
which provides access to library hold- 
ings. The Online catalog offers more 
searching options than the card catalog 
and can be accessed via library termi- 
nals, on-campus terminals linked 
through the campus computer center, 
and personal terminals or microcompu- 
ters with dial-up capabilities. 


HSL/MEDLINE provides convenient 
access to the journal literature as a 
component of the library's automated 
system. This database can be accessed 
the same way as the online catalog. It is 
easy to use and is designed for those 
who need information quickly. 

The library's information services 
staff provides customized subject bibli- 
ographies from over 200 databases in 
the sciences and the social sciences in- 
cluding MEDLINE, Biological Abstracts, 
Toxline, and Psychological Abstracts 
through the Computerized Reference 
and Bibliographic Services (CRABS'). 

The Health Sciences Library has es- 
tablished an innovative outreach service 
program which adds a new dimension 
to library service on campus. Each of 
six information specialist librarians is 
assigned to one of the professional 
schools or the hospital. The information 
specialists participate in collection eval- 
uation and development in the respec- 
tive subject areas related to their 
assigned professional school, teach sem- 
inars and offer orientations in informa- 
tion retrieval and serve as information 
consultants. The reference services staff 
also provides traditional reference 

Interhbrary loan service is available 
for needed materials not held in the li- 
brary collection. 

Self-service photocopy machines are 
available on all floors of the library. The 
library is open 8:00 a.m. -10:00 p.m. 
(Monday- Friday), 9:00 a. m -5:00 
p.m. (Saturday) and 12:00 noon-8:00 
p.m. (Sunday). Special holiday and 
summer hours are posted. 

Information Resources 
Management Division 

To make the benefits of information 
technology available to enrolled stu- 
dents on the UMAB campus, the Infor- 
mation Resources Management Division 
(IRMD) staffs and maintains a Technol- 
ogy Assisted Learning (TAL) Center in 

the dental school, which is available to 
all students. This center provides access 
to microcomputers and offers support 
in their use. Information on services 
and hours can be obtained by calling 
the TAL Centers (328-4493), or the 
IRMD Help Desk (328-4488). 

In addition, the IRMD offers access 
to mainframe computers on both the 
UMAB and College Park campuses 
through the facilities of Academic Com- 
puting. The system has the capabilities 
provided by Basic, Fortran, Pascal and 
PL-1 languages as well as statistical 
analysis packages SPSS, SAS and BMDP 
To gain access to this unit, a student 
must open an account. Call 328-2383 
for details. Both units offer instructional 
services as well as help desk and first 
aid functions to assist students in using 
computing and associated technologies 
to full advantage. 

Medical Alumni Association 

"The alumni of the School of Medicine 
of the University of Maryland desiring 
to further the interest and advancement 
of the University of Maryland School of 
Medicine and perpetuate the associa- 
tions made during the medical school 
period. ..." With that preamble to its 
constitution, the Medical Alumni As- 
sociation has, since 1895, served all 
graduates, students, faculty, staff and 
physicians affiliated with the School of 

The Medical Alumni Association of- 
fice is located in Davidge Hall at 522 
West Lombard Street and is open week- 
days from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. 
Among its many activities the Alumni 
Association coordinates the Alumni 
Weekend Reunion program in early 
May and the five-year class reunions 
held at that time. The association pub- 
lishes the quarterly Bulletin and dis- 
tributes it to all alumni, faculty and 

Since the association inaugurated 
the Annual Giving Drive in 1978, dona- 
tions totaling more than $4 million 
have been received. The annual pho- 
nothon has been responsible for 75% of 

the annual giving total. Much of its suc- 
cess is attributed to the 100 alumni vol- 
unteers who spend at least one evening 
contacting former classmates. 

One million dollars in alumni sup- 
port was designated for the restoration 
of Davidge Hall which was completed 
in 1982. Davidge Hall is now a "living 
museum" displaying a valuable collec- 
tion of antique instruments, portraits 
and other memorabilia representative of 
the history of medicine at Maryland 
and the pioneers in medicine at this 

The association also has been in- 
strumental in securing a number of lec- 
tureships, student loan funds and a 
large student aid grant. In 1958 the 
alumni association established a no- 
interest student loan fund which has 
grown over the past several years 
through strong alumni support. Cur- 
rently $140,000 is on loan to medical 
students in need of financial assistance. 

In an effort to promote better com- 
munication among students, faculty 
and the alumni association, social eve- 
nings are hosted by the association to 
bring together faculty, alumni and 
members of each medical school class. 
Annually the association hosts the 
freshman pizza party, the sophomore 
beef and beer bash and the junior oys- 
ter roast, and during alumni week the 
graduating seniors and their guests en- 
joy dinner and dancing at the annual 
alumni banquet. 

The Medical Alumni Association is 
self-supporting and all expenses in- 
curred in its operation, including 
alumni and student activities and pub- 
lication of the Bulletin, are supported by 
membership dues. All faculty and staff 
members of the School of Medicine and 
University of Maryland Medical System 
are eligible for association membership. 
The association's primary function is to 
provide service to alumni, students and 


Student Life 

Office of Student Affairs 

The Office of Student Affairs is de- 
signed to provide guidance, advice, 
help and administrative services to stu- 
dents enrolled in medicine. In addition, 
the office is responsible for monitoring 
student progress and advancement, reg- 
istration, graduation and all aspects of 
student life related to undergraduate 
medical school. To this end, the office 
employs one full-time associate dean 
and one full-time assistant dean, three 
part-time assistant deans, two coordina- 
tors and a clerical staff. 

While the entire staff is available to 
help all students in any area, some 
members also assume a specialty area 
within their overall functions. These 
specialty areas include minority affairs, 
senior year elective advising, student 
fellowships, national residency pro- 
grams advising, counseling and admin- 
istration of the students' Vertical 
Advisory System. 

Elective Program, The Office of Stu- 
dent Affairs compiles course offerings, 
schedules courses and changes of elec- 
tives. and provides for both evaluation 
of a student's performance during elec- 
tives and evaluation of the electives 

Office of Minority Affairs. The office 
coordinates activities concerned with 
the recruitment and retention of minor- 
ity medical students. Some specific 
goals are to increase the number of mi- 
nority students entering medical school 
and to provide all reasonable assistance 
necessary to facilitate their positive 
progress through the School of Medi- 
cine. To this end. workshops, academic 
and personal counseling, group and in- 
dividual tutorial services, and as- 
sistance in securing financial aid and 
summer employment are offered. 

Residency Advisory System. The resi- 
dency advisory system provides as- 
sistance in specialty career planning 
and guidance in the selection of suitable 
residency training programs. This ser- 
vice is available individually to all 
members of the junior and senior class. 

Vertical Advisory System. Students 
have the opportunity for close personal 
association with a team of faculty ad- 
visors and upperclass students during 
each of the four years of medical school. 
This advisory system, administered 
through the Office of Student Affairs, 
provides a helpful, ongoing interchange 
concerning academic, social, personal 
and career problems and opportunities. 

Financial Assistance. Information re- 
garding the types of aid available to 
medical students is detailed in the fi- 
nancial information section. 

Human Dimensions in Medical 
Education (HDME) Program 

The HDME Program provides oppor- 
tunities for informal activities among 
students and faculty outside the class- 
room setting. These range from social 
gatherings to small group discussions of 
concerns and feelings related to the 
personal and professional aspects of 
medical education and practice. 

Students may elect to participate in 
the HDME Program at any point in 
their medical school career. Many enter 
the program by attending the pre-fresh- 
man orientation retreat held in late 
August. The retreat is attended by stu- 
dents from all levels of training, faculty 
members, and in many cases, spouses 

or close friends. Participants thus are 
provided an opportunity to get ac- 
quainted in an informal and intimate 
off-campus setting. Much of the time at 
the retreat is spent in intensive small 
group sessions. Topics of discussion are 
determined in each group, but typically 
include adjustment to medical school, 
the impact of a medical career on do- 
mestic life, and the problem of setting 
priorities among various professional 
and personal demands. Recreational ac- 
tivities also are included in the four-day 

Students in the HDME Program 
also participate in the Vertical Advisory 
System (see Office of Student Affairs). 
but normally are assigned faculty ad- 
visors within the HDME Program. 

HDME was conceived at The Center 
for the Study of the Person in La Jolla, 
California. The program is planned and 
operated locally by student-faculty 
committees. One goal of the program is 
to provide an environment in which 
students and faculty advisors can de- 
velop a bond during the four years of 
medical school Another desired out- 
come is the development of effective 
communication and listening skills that 
will enable medical students, house of- 
ficers and faculty members to become 
better health care providers.

Student Government 

Student Welfare and Activities. The 
deans, class officers and other student 
leaders meet regularly to discuss the 
concerns and general welfare of the 

Judicial Board. The medical school 
community adheres to a general state- 
ment of ethical principles which are 
subject to periodic review by a judicial 
board. This board is chaired by a fac- 
ulty member appointed by the dean, 
and is composed of elected representa- 
tives from the faculty, the student body 
and the house staff. The board investi- 
gates any alleged infractions of the ethi- 
cal code and conducts appropriate 
hearings. The board's findings and rec- 
ommendations are then forwarded to 
the dean for final disposition. 

Student Council. The Student Coun- 
cil is the official representative body of 
medical, medical technology and physi- 
cal therapy students. All students of 
these professions become dejure mem- 
bers of the student body at registration 
upon payment of the student activities 
fee. Student Council members are elec- 
ted by the classes of the student body 
with one representative per 50 mem- 
bers (or fraction thereof), the first rep- 
resentative being the duly elected 
president of the class. 

The Student Council disburses 
monies from the student activities fund 
according to the council's financial dis- 
bursement guidelines; defines areas of 
school-wide interest; and coordinates 
support for related activities through 
policy guidance, funding and 

Student Publication 

Terrae Mariae Medicus, the yearbook, is 
published annually at the discretion of 
the medical school's senior class. Since 
1896 the volume has provided wide 
coverage of student life. Each senior re- 
ceives a yearbook, the cost of which is 
included in the student activities fee. 

Student Organizations 

Alpha Omega Alpha. The Beta chapter of 
Maryland was established at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in 1949. Medical 
students possessing outstanding 
qualities of moral integrity, scholarship 
and leadership are elected to member- 
ship in their third or fourth years. The 
society sponsors an annual lectureship, 
a forum for the presentation of medical 
student research and chapter meetings 
on topics of social, educational and 
philosophical interest to medical stu- 
dents and faculty. 

American Medical Student Association 
(AMSA). The AMSA chapter at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland School of Medicine 
is a chartered member of the national 
AMSA, an organization begun in 1951 
to channel student energies into im- 
proving the delivery of health care in 
the United States. Its concerns include 
a wide variety of health issues, from 
manpower recruitment, education and 
utilization, to legislation and planning 
of innovative methods of raising the 
level of health care in the country. 
Membership is open to all medical, al- 
lied health professions and pre-med 
students on an affiliate basis. Na- 
tionally, AMSA offers students the op- 
portunity to design, administer and 
participate in programs and projects 
that increase the student's awareness of 
the multiplicity of factors that deter- 
mine levels of health. Locally, AMSA 
sponsors freshman orientation for the 
medical school, fosters social interac- 
tion among medical students and sends 
delegates to regional conferences and 
national conventions. Each year AMSA, 
together with the senior class, selects 
the teaching faculty member to receive 
the Golden Apple Award in recognition 
of teaching excellence. 

American Medical Women's Associa- 
tion (AMWA). The University of Mary- 
land American Medical Women's 
Association, organized in 1979, is a 
chartered junior branch of AMWA 
sponsored by the Maryland AMWA. 
AMWA is a national association 
organized to promote the interests of 

women physicians and to provide for a 
sharing of mutual interests and friend- 
ship. Maryland has an active regional 
branch, composed of women physicians 
practicing in this state. 

Family Practice Club. In 1969, a 
group of medical students formed this 
organization to increase the awareness 
of the new specialty of family practice 
and to provide activities related to it. 
Through the club's summer preceptor- 
ship program and its monthly meetings, 
students interact socially with practic- 
ing family physicians in the discussion 
of topics of current interest in family 
medicine. The Maryland Academy of 
Family Physicians and the school's De- 
partment of Family Medicine are both 
very active in their support of the club's 

Student National Medical Association 
(SNMA). The University of Maryland 
SNMA chapter was organized in 1970 
by the minority medical students. The 
organization's general goals focus upon 
alleviating the crisis of health care 
delivery in minority groups of the 
American population by increasing en- 
rollment and decreasing the attrition 
rate of minority students in medical 
schools. One specific goal of the na- 
tional organization is a program di- 
rected at the problem of sickle cell 
anemia. On campus, the local chapter 
gives a voice to problems facing minor- 
ity students in medicine in general, and 
at this medical school in particular. The 
group also provides pertinent activities 
and functions for the well-being of its 

The objectives of AMWA's junior 
branch include: fostering the associa- 
tion of women in medicine; encourag- 
ing social and cooperative relations; 
aiding women medical students; en- 
couraging and supporting premedical 
women; promoting the responsiveness 
of medical education to the needs of 
women; and bringing medical students 
into association with the AMWA. 


Campus Health Services 

The School of Medicine arranges health 
care for its students through Campus 
Health Services (CHS), where primary 
care is provided by the faculty of the 
Department of Family Medicine with 
the support of nurse practitioners. 

Gynecological services and psychi- 
atric counseling services are provided. 
The services of other subspecialists are 
provided through referrals to the appro- 
priate faculty members. 

Hospitalization, if required, may be 
provided by the Family Medicine fac- 
ulty and other subspecialists. or by re- 
ferral, at the student's request. All forms 
of counseling are available, at no 
charge. All care is confidential and rec- 
ords are never released without the stu- 
dent's written permission. 

All students are required to have 
Blue Cross hospitalization insurance or 
its equivalent and must produce proof 
of such membership at the time of reg- 
istration. A special student policy is 
available to all students enrolled in the 
medical school. Detailed information 
regarding its provisions may be ob- 
tained from Campus Health Services 
and or registration packets. 

Also required for registration and 
enrollment are a physical examination, 
hepatitis B immunization and tuber- 
culin skm test and or chest x-ray. as 
scheduled by Campus Health Services. 
Using CHS forms, the physical exam- 
ination may be performed by a personal 
physician at student cost, and the forms 
returned to Campus Health Services. 
Examination will include eye and ear 
testing. Abnormalities found during the 
examination are discussed with the stu- 
dent. All students must complete the 
physical examination before registration 
is complete. 

Since medical school is the entry 
point into a lifetime as a health profes- 
sional, students undertake a three-dose 
course of immunization against hepa- 
titis B. Hepatitis is very much an oc- 
cupational illness of physicians, and is 

of serious consequence to many nonim- 
mune physicians. The series is given at 
cost, and the protection is important 
physically and psychologically Immu- 
nization is scheduled for each class 
through Campus Health Services 

In order to avoid absences during 
the academic year, prospective students 
are advised to have any known health 
problems under control and listed in 
their medical history before entering 
the School of Medicine. Campus Health 
Services, by prior arrangement and 
knowledge, will treat chronic condi- 
tions contracted by students prior to 
admission or will extend treatment to 
acute conditions developed in the 
period between academic years. 

All students are required to pay a 
health fee at registration. This fee 
covers all regular visits to Campus 
Health Services during the school year. 
Any necessary diagnostic studies will be 
at the expense of the student unless the 
studies are covered by insurance. A 
small fee (S9 per semester*) will provide 
the student with coverage for all am- 
bulatory lab charges and may be paid at 

Emergency room visits for other 
than life-threatening emergencies will 
not be covered by Campus Health Ser- 
vices without prior telephone approval 
by the medical admitting officer. 

A student's spouse or other mem- 
bers of the family are eligible for health 
care at rates reflecting professional

timore maintains a campus housing 
program as part of the total educational 
experience. Two campus housing facili- 
ties offer a variety of living styles at dif- 
ferent rates: Pascault Row. a new, fully

The Department of Anatomy provides 
instruction in all the anatomical sci- 
ences: gross anatomy, microscopic 
anatomy, neurologic anatomy and de- 
velopmental anatomy. Courses are of- 
fered to medical students and to 
graduate students working toward an 
MS or PhD degree. The educational 
goal of the department is to provide a 
basic understanding of the structure of 
the human body as related to normal 

function. Whenever possible, important 
clinical implications and research ap- 
plications of the material under study 
are emphasized. The study of human 
structure includes all levels from gross 
morphology seen in the dissecting 
room to the fine structure as revealed 
with the electron microscope. The neu- 
roanatomy course is taught in an inte- 
grated format with neurophysiology, 
neurochemistry, neurobiology and 
clinical neurology. 

A knowledge of anatomy is essential 
to the proper understanding of clinical 
practice. Since a full understanding of 
any basic science can be obtained only 
by direct observation, the anatomy de- 
partment emphasizes laboratory in- 
struction in its gross microscopic and 
neurologic anatomy courses. By inte- 
grating the theoretical lectures with the 
practical laboratory assignments, the 
development provides the students with 
a comprehensive and meaningful treat- 
ment of the subject. 

Research Interests 

The faculty of the Department of Anat- 
omy are actively engaged in research on 
several fundamental aspects of cell biol- 
ogy. Projects on spinal cord regenera- 
tion, neuronal transplantation, 
innervation of cerebral blood vessels, 
and circulation of the cerebrospinal 
fluid are representative of departmental 
interests in neurobiology. Studies of 
muscle biology focus upon atrophy, hy- 
pertrophy, growth, regeneration and 
trophic influences of nerves on skeletal 
muscle. An extensive research program 
on reproductive biology is focused on 
the regulation of ovarian function. 

Undergraduate Medical 
First Year 
MANA 511. Anatomy of the Human 
Body. A comprehensive understanding 
of the morphology of the human body 
is provided. The basic concepts of 
structure as related to function are de- 
scribed in lectures and demonstrations. 

Laboratory facilities are provided for 
dissection of the human body and for 
the study of osteology and prosected 
material. The course includes instruc- 
tion in living anatomy, roentgen anat- 
omy and clinical correlation. (Dr. Rees 
and Staff) 

MANA 512. Histology and Cell Biol- 
ogy. Students will acquire a basic 
knowledge and understanding of the 
light microscopic structure of the hu- 
man body and its fine structure as seen 
with the electron microscope. The in- 
terdependence between structure and 
function in the different tissues and 
organs of the body is emphasized. 
Clinical and research applications of the 
course material are also stressed. Histo- 
logical slides are provided for labora- 
tory study and special lectures are 
given on functional ultrastructure. (Dr. 
Guth and Staff) 

MANA 513. Neurological Sciences. 
This course provides an integrated 
study of neuroanatomy, neurophysiol- 
ogy, neurochemistry and clinical neu- 
rochemistry. The structure and 
function of the central nervous system 
are presented simultaneously. Facilities 
are provided for dissection of the hu- 
man brain, examination of stained mi- 
croscopic sections of various levels of 
the brain stem, and laboratory experi- 
ence involving the study of functional 
aspects of the nervous system. (Dr. Ren- 
nels and StafD 

MANA 514. Human Embryology. This 
series of one-hour lectures surveys the 
fundamentals of development of the 
various organ systems from conception 
to birth. iDr. Hirshfield and StafD 

Special electives are available to clinical 
and preclinical students. Some are 
listed in the Graduate School and medi- 
cal school elective catalogs, and others

As part of the sophomore course given 
by the Department of Pharmacology 
and Experimental Therapeutics, a dis- 
cussion group elective "Clinical Practice 
in Anesthesiology" is offered to present 
the core curriculum of the specialty 
The course is highlighted by "hands on" 
laboratory animal demonstrations in 
the Anesthesiology Research 

In addition, during the first two 
years the department participates in 
lectures, conferences and laboratory 
exercises of various preclinical depart- 
ments. Such participation is intended to 
illustrate the application of basic sci- 
ence principles to the clinical practice 
of anesthesiology. Emphasis is placed 
on the physiologic and pharmacologic 
basis for the management of patients 
before, during and after surgery 

Electives of varying orientation and 
complexity are provided during the 
clinical years. These include clinical 
anesthesiology, neuroanesthesia and 
critical care medicine. Further informa- 
tion and details concerning the elective 
courses may be found in the electives 
catalog or by contacting the department 

Research Interests 

Research is related to cardiorespiratory 
function and computer models. Studies 
under way include the effects of air em- 
bolism on expired N 2 analysis during 
bolus and infusion VAE and the effects 
of CPR on large bolus VAE analyzed 
with the gamma camera and radi- 
oisotopes. High frequency ventilation 
and continuous flow ventilation tech- 
niques are under study to determine 
the differences between high frequency 
oscillation and the flow interrupter in 
comparison to conventional mechanical 
ventilation. Continuous flow ventilation 
including apneic oxygenation, endo- 
bronchial insufflation and tracheal in- 
sufflation of oxygen are also compared 
to conventional ventilation. The dif- 
ferences in washout of radioisotopes 
from occluded segments of lung during 
high-frequency and continuous flow 
ventilation are compared to washout 
with conventional ventilation. In addi- 
tion, the effects of high frequency ven- 
tilation on liver blood flow have been 

Other studies are examining Xenon 
uptake and distribution and develop- 
ment of a Xenon carrier. The Xenon 
studies in general are used to examine 
gas exchange mechanisms related to 


cardiac activity and flow through collat- 
eral airways during these novel forms of 

Computer analysis and modeling 
include networking of instrumentation 
in the laboratory to provide on-line 
data acquisition; development of an 
anesthesia simulator and a teaching 
model for management of mechanical 

Seven faculty members and two res- 
ident anesthesiologists are actively par- 
ticipating in laboratory studies. Up to 
three medical students can be accom-

Biochemistry seeks to understand 
the phenomena of biology in terms of 
molecular structure and interaction. It 
permeates all of biology and medicine 
and is a fundamental prerequisite to 
other medical sciences, particularly 
pharmacology, microbiology and pa- 
thology; and the clinical sciences. 

It is a teaching goal of the depart- 
ment to present a concise but com- 
prehensive lecture-conference course 
including as major subjects: proteins, 
enzymes, nucleic acids, intermediary 
metabolism of major food stuffs, energy 
production and utilization, chemical as- 
pects of hormones, protein and nucleic 
acid biosynthesis and biochemical ge- 
netics. In addition, the introductory 
medical course includes a systematic 
series of sessions organized with the 
Department of Medicine which demon- 
strates the application of biochemistry 
to the understanding of human meta- 
bolic disorders. 

Because some entering students 
have had a reasonably thorough ex- 
posure to biochemistry, the department 
offers a place-out examination during 
the first week of the freshman year. 


In connection with the elective pro- 
gram embodied in the revised curricu- 
lum, a number of special seminar- 
conference topics are offered in both 
the January and June elective periods. 
Details and descriptions of course offer- 
ings can be found in the electives cata- 
log. Additionally, students with special 
interests in biochemical investigation 
are encouraged to ask faculty members 
about opportunities for part-time or 
summer research. Limited funds have 
been available to support part-time re- 
search assistants from the medical 

The department also offers a doc- 
toral program and a series of advanced 
courses (see Graduate School catalog). 

Research Interests 

Research interests within the Depart- 
ment of Biochemistry are numerous 
and include studies in metabolism and 
enzymology (both mammalian and 
microbial), transport and membrane 
biochemistry, enzymology and fluores- 
cence spectroscopy. Other research in- 
terests within the department focus 
upon collagen structure and metabo- 
lism, hemoglobin biochemistry, ge- 
netics and morphogenesis of viruses, 
regulation and synthesis of glycopro- 
teins, and metabolism of nucleic acids.

separate but closely related course, cor- 
relative medicine, brings clinical cor- 
relation to the biochemical material in a 
series of weekly presentations of scien- 
tific clinical lectures, sometimes center- 
ing around a patient. (Staff)

Since German physicist Wilhelm Con- 
rad Roentgen discovered the x-ray in 
1895, its use has been greatly expanded 
in our society. With the advances in 
technique, including computed to- 
mography, radiology now makes or ver- 
ifies the diagnosis in three out of four 
cases of organic disease. With the ad- 
vent of nuclear medicine, ultrasonogra- 
phy and magnetic resonance imaging 
(MRI), diagnostic imaging is playing an 
even more extended role in diagnosis 
and selected therapeutic procedures. 

Research Interests 

Basic science research in the Depart- 
ment of Diagnostic Radiology focuses 
upon digital radiography and fluoros- 
copy sensor development. Departmen- 
tal researchers are building a high- 
resolution, scanning solid state x-ray 
detector for digital radiographic studies, 
particularly mammography. There is 
also an active project evaluating pulsed, 
low frame rate fluoroscopy for patient 
exposure reduction. The department is 
also working in cooperation with x-ray 
equipment manufacturers to improve 
current digital subtraction angiography 
(DSA) systems. A new area of research 
being developed is the application of 
computer vision techniques to radiogra- 
phy imaging. This effort, in collabora- 
tion with the internationally renowed 
Computer Vision Laboratory at UMCP, 
will seek to develop quantitative mea- 
sures to assist the radiologist in evaluat- 
ing the presence, extent and severity of 
disease. An active project in abdominal 
ultrasound is now in its early stages. 

Clinical research in this department 
focuses upon two long-term projects. 
Together with physicians in Gynecolo- 
gic Oncology and the University of 
Maryland Cancer Center, the depart- 
ment is working to establish the 
accuracy and limits of computed 
tomography and MRI in staging 
gynecologic malignancies and lym- 
phoma. Another project, involving 
MIEMSS physicians, is an investigation 
of the usefulness of CT and MRI in the 
diagnosis of multiple visceral trauma 
and their complications. 


Undergraduate Medical 

The Department of Diagnostic Radiol- 
ogy offers the medical student an op- 
portunity to acquire a broad base of 
knowledge touching on almost all as- 
pects of medicine. The required curric- 
ulum begins with radiologic anatomy 
taught as a part of Gross Anatomy 
iMANA 511) m the first year. This por- 
tion of the curriculum consists of lec- 
ture demonstrations and a slide-tape 
series. "Introduction to Radiographic 
Anatomy." Formal instruction is con- 
tinued in the third year with the course 
RADI 540. The required curriculum is 
supplemented with informal case dis- 
cussions with the staff and contact 
through interdepartmental rounds and 
conferences involving Diagnostic Radi- 
ology while the student is on other 
clinical rotations at the University of 
Maryland Medical System Hospital. 

Third Year 
RADI 540. Basic Radiology. Groups of 
students are assigned for a period of 
three weeks to the Department of Diag- 
nostic Radiology. The group is sub- 
divided to allow individual instruction 
as the student rotates through brief ob- 
servation periods in selected sub- 
specialties within the department. 
Students also receive an introduction to 
the Department of Radiation Oncology. 
Reading assignments, small group slide- 
tape exercises, a student teaching file 
and lectures form the core of the learn- 
ing experience. Students attend depart- 
mental conferences and some of the 
joint conferences with other depart- 
ments. An objective final examination is 
included in the course. (Dr. J. Whitley) 

Third and Fourth Year 
Diagnostic Radiology Elective. Stu- 
dents learn more about properly using 
diagnostic imaging and interpreting im- 
ages. The precise curriculum is flexible. 
tailored to the needs of the student's ca- 
reer choice. Students are expected to 

investigate some small aspect of imag- 
ing within their area of interest and 
make a 20-minute presentation to the 
faculty and residents. This presentation 
and overall performance, as evaluated 
by the curriculum supervisor, serve as 
the evaluation criteria for this elective 
RADI 540 is a prerequisite. iDr. J. 

Graduate Program 

A four-year residency is offered in diag- 
nostic radiology at the University of 
Maryland Medical System Hospital. Fel- 
lowships are offered in computed body 
tomography ultrasonography MR1. in- 
terventional and vascular radiology and 
neuroradiology and nuclear radiology.

Modern epidemiology is a relatively 
new biomedical discipline at the inter- 
face of clinical practice and basic medi- 
cal science. The clinical arena within 
which epidemiologists work is termed 
preventive medicine. The practice of 
epidemiology and preventive medicine 
requires a comprehensive knowledge of 
clinical medicine and basic medical sci- 
ence, as well as of experimental meth- 
odology, biostatistics and the social 

The department is engaged in 
teaching, research and service across 
the spectrum of public health and pre- 
ventive medicine. Programs in gerontol- 
ogy, medical informatics, environmental 
and occupational health, chronic and 
infectious disease epidemiology, bio- 
statistics, health services administration 
and evaluation, maternal and child 

health and behavioral science are of- 
fered. Faculty members also conduct 
research and offer courses, seminars, 
journal clubs, clinical assignments and 
supervised research experiences de- 
signed to enhance the physician's ca- 
pabilities in these areas of increasing 
public concern. 

The Division of Gerontology is a 
leading academic unit devoted to re- 
search, teaching and service programs 
in geriatrics and gerontology. Evalua- 
tion of hospital-based, ambulatory and 
national health care issues and aca- 
demic programs relating thereto are the 
responsibility of the Division of Health 
Care Policy and Administration. The 
newly established Division of Medical 
Informatics, staffed by faculty from the 
Medical School and internationally ac- 
claimed computer scientists from the 
College Park campus, is responsible for 
the computer literacy of medical stu- 
dents, graduate courses in information 
science and computer-based research 
projects. The Health Data Management 
Center, the service arm of the Division 
of Medical Informatics, offers a wide 
range of research, project development 
and data management services to fac- 
ulty and students at UMAB and 
beyond. Interdisciplinary programs 
with the Division of Geographic Medi- 
cine, the International Health Program 
and the University of Maryland Cancer 
Center are additional resources avail- 
able to qualified students. Other facili- 
ties include: the Survey Research & 

Development Center, a university-based 
resource for the design, conduct and 
analysis of all types of mailed, tele- 
phoned, personal and community sur- 
veys; the Maryland Cancer Registry, a 
computerized state-wide system for reg- 
istering data on cancer patients, de- 
veloped and operated for the 
Department of Health and Mental 
Hygiene; and UniHealth, a health pro- 
motion and risk appraisal resource, de- 
signed to serve hospitals, industry, 
private physicians and population 
groups with an array of computerized 
assessment, intervention and health be- 
havior modification programs. 

Required courses in biostatistics, 
epidemiology, occupational health, or- 
ganizational aspects of medicine and 
clinical preventive medicine are offered 
in the first, second and fourth years of 
the curriculum. A variety of graduate 
courses, tutorials and research experi- 
ences are available to medical students 
during their elective periods. Students 
also are invited to attend departmental 
seminars, resident seminars and journal 
clubs which are scheduled each week 
throughout the academic year. Summer 
fellowships, in which students engage 
in epidemiologic projects under faculty 
supervision and participate in depart- 
mental seminars and workshops, are 
available on a competitive basis. 


An approved two- or three-year res- 
idency leading to certification in gen- 
eral preventive medicine is offered to 
clinically qualified applicants. The pro- 
gram is designed to satisfy a wide vari- 
ety of career aspirations for positions in 
federal health agencies, state health de- 
partments, hospitals, medical schools, 
public health institutes, industry and 
private practice of clinical preventive 

The community service activities of 
the department are carried out through 
active collaboration in health planning, 
research and evaluation with agencies 
and institutions concerned with health 
problems throughout the region. These 
include hospitals, clinics, health depart- 
ments, and a variety of other federal 
and voluntary organizations. 

Research Interests 

Research activities within the depart- 
ment encompass a broad range of 
interests. Cardiovascular disease, partic- 
ularly coronary heart disease and 
hypertension, is a major focus of atten- 
tion. Cancer investigations include 
studies on the etiology of specific neo- 
plasms, analysis of time trends, and de- 
velopment of computerized clinical 
information management systems. En- 
vironmental risk factors in congenital 
heart disease and other birth defects are 
an important area of departmental re- 
search. The epidemiology of diabetes 
mellitus and relationships between ma- 
ternal diabetes mellitus and adverse 
health outcomes in the offspring are 
also being studied. A variety of research 
projects in gerontology, occupational 
health, drug abuse, hip fractures, nurs- 
ing home utilization, smoking in preg- 
nancy and the elderly living alone are 
under way. 

Hospital and health services are 
subjects of increasing interest to depart- 
mental faculty, with studies on patterns 
of utilization at University Hospital and 
other metropolitan Baltimore institu- 
tions recently completed. Health be- 
havior modification is another area of 

departmental activity, with new find- 
ings on the effect of smoking during 
pregnancy on the offspring recently 
published. UniHealth, the department's 
health promotion program, has de- 
veloped computerized health risk ap- 
praisal instruments as well as specific 
health behavior modification regimens 
for use by industry and the general 

Changing patterns in medical edu- 
cation, improving the quality of care for 
mothers with dependent children, trop- 
ical and infectious diseases and preven- 
tive cardiology are other areas of 
research interest to the department.

The Department of Family Medicine ed- 
ucates family physicians to be capable 
of rendering high-quality medical care 
to individual patients and families in a 
continuous and comprehensive manner. 
The family physician has responsibility 
for patient care at the point of entry 
into the health care system; acts as pro- 
vider or coordinator of health care at 
the secondary and long-term care 
phases of illness; and coordinates terti- 
ary care. 

The department offers educational 
experiences in family medicine for stu- 
dents in the Family Health Center, on 
the inpatient service, and through an 
interdisciplinary longitudinal educa- 
tional program which is guided by a 
full-time staff of experienced family 
physicians. Moreover, students are af- 
forded the opportunity to participate in 
community health services and super- 
vised practice experiences, and to en- 
gage in basic health care research. 


Within the scope of family medicine 
activities, several areas are emphasized. 
The department has a Division of Geri- 
atrics and is a national leader in geri- 
atric education. It was the first (1974) 
specifically dedicated Division of Geri- 
atrics on this campus. Multiple pro- 
grams, both departmental and 
interdisciplinary, are in place or being 
formulated. The Robert Wood Johnson 
Foundation has awarded this program a 
long-term grant for the development of 
an innovative health care system for the 
elderly. The broad spectrum of the divi- 
sion's educational, research and patient 
care efforts includes the pre-elderly well 
and the chronically incapacitated aged 
patient. Expansion of facilities to ac- 
complish the above are in progress. 
Faculty development is a major depart- 
mental effort as well. Courses and 
workshops in teaching skills are offered 
to postdoctoral and predoctoral stu- 
dents. Fellowships in geriatric medicine 
are offered to residency graduates who 
wish to further develop their skills in 
the care of geriatric patients. 

Research Interests 

The research efforts of the Department 
of Family Medicine reflect the broad in- 
terests of the department's faculty C ur- 
rent projects, which are clinically 
oriented and relate to current medical 
problems, range from epidemiologic 
studies to evaluations ol specific 
therapies The department has a strong 
interest in nutrition, especially as it re- 
lates to the family and the elderly. It 
has interest as well in health promotion 
and collaborates with other depart- 
ments to investigate methods of health 
promotion Other collaborative efforts 
involve infections in the elderly, ab- 
dominal pain, informed consent, and 
osteoarthritis During their last year ol 

training all Family Medicine residents 
are required to complete a research 
project and present their results at the 
Annual Family Medicine Residents' Re- 
search Day. The department faculty, fel- 
lows and residents present their 
research at national meetings, and 
through publications 

Undergraduate Medical 

Longitudinal Elective. Introduced into 
the curriculum in L976, this elective 
permits the student interested in family 
medicine to decide on and gain knowl- 
edge toward that career objective In- 
cluded in this offering are interesting 
field trips, seminars, panel discussions 
and preceptorship experiences Topics 
include historical medical perspectives; 
the economics ol medicine; the humane 
approach to patient care; interrelation- 
ships among patient, family, com- 
munity and physician medical 
profession, to name a few (Dr. Rixey) 
Minimester Electives. During the 
months of January (not available to 
freshman students in January) anil 
June Students may elect to spend time 
in the office ol a selected family physi- 
cian in order to gain knowledge ol the 
health care system at that level In this 
setting, the student may opt for patient 
care participation and or engage in 
some health care research in that am- 
bulatory population (Dr Guyther) 

The Family Care Track 

The Family Care Track (FCT) Program 
is a four-year elective sponsored by the 
Department of Family Medicine. This 
course is designed to provide students 
with an opportunity to participate in 
direct patient care throughout their four 
years of medical education. The focus of 
the curriculum is on the family physi- 
cian's role in the care of the urban poor, 
and will attempt to enrich each stu- 
dent's knowledge and skills in dealing 
with an urban population. 

Up to 20 students each year will be 
selected from the freshman Longitudi- 
nal Elective in Family Medicine to par- 
ticipate in the Family Care Track 
Program. In addition to participating in 
the didactic and practicum experiences 
in the freshman and sophomore elec- 
tives, students will be assigned to work 
with patients and their families in the 
Family Health Center under the direct 
supervision of a family physician. Dur- 
ing their freshman minimester precep- 
torship students also will have the 
opportunity to spend four weeks in the 
office of an urban family physician and 
to complete a community project ad- 
dressing an area of health need by grad- 
uation. Students also will be exposed to 

J 5 

small group integration seminars and 
computer assisted programmed learn- 
ing which will be directed at integrating 
their clinical experiences within the 
context of family and community. 

Credits for this elective include: f) 
one basic science and one non-basic 
science credit for each year of the long- 
itudinal elective; 2) four weeks of senior 
elective credit at the completion of the 
program; and 3) introduction to clinical 
practice credit. 

Senior Elective in Family Practice. In 
this elective students work with a com- 
munity family physician preceptor. 
Under supervision they have the oppor- 
tunity to manage problems typical of a 
busy practice ranging from obstetrics to 
geriatrics. Here there is ample oppor- 
tunity to be involved in coordinating 
continuous care for four to six weeks. 
Students begin to understand the pa- 
tient in relationship to his family, his 
job, and his environment. Furthermore, 
the student observes the role of the 
physician in society, his social and civic 
obligations and responsibilities to the 
patient. Site options range from Urban 
Health Manpower shortage sites to rural 
private practice. In these varied settings 
students are expected to carry out a 
small clinical investigation, using data 
collected in the practice, and to attend 
weekly Alcoholics Anonymous or Al- 
A-Non meetings in the community. 
Senior Internship in Family Practice. 
The Department of Family Medicine of- 
fers an eight-week internship to senior 
students. This is an intensive inpatient 
experience utilizing the Family Medi- 
cine Inpatient Service. Variety is a ma- 
jor attraction as the patients' needs 
range from newborn care and obstetrics 
to adult general medical care. The stu- 
dent is exposed to the family practice 
approach to inpatient care with an em- 
phasis on interdisciplinary, comprehen- 
sive and continuous care. The students 
participate in night and weekend call. 
(Dr. Poulsen) 

Senior Ambulatory Clerkship in 
Family Practice. As an additional op- 
tion in the required Senior Ambulatory 
Course, students may select the Family 
Health Center. This eight-week rotation 
exposes students to the clinical practice 
of the University of Maryland Depart- 
ment of Family Medicine Residency 
Program. In this setting students are 
scheduled to see patients daily in the 
Family Health Center, work with a vari- 
ety of preceptors from the Department 
of Family Medicine, and participate in 
didactic sessions. This ambulatory ex- 
perience is designed to expose students 
to the principles and practice of Family 

Graduate Medical Program 

The University of Maryland's approved 
three-year residency in family practice 
is one of the oldest in the nation. Ap- 
proximately 30 residents are enrolled in 
a three-year program whose goal is to 
provide comprehensive training in the 
specialty utilizing the latest information 
and educational methods. The educa- 
tional requirements of the Residency 
Review Committee in Family Practice of 
the Accreditation Council for Graduate 
Medical Education are closely adhered 
to. Additionally, every effort is made to 
see that the curriculum and educational 
experiences are in accordance with the 
Residency Assistance Program's Criteria 
for Excellence in Training. Flexibility, 
however is maintained through the 
availability of electives in order to ac- 
commodate the specific needs of the 
trainee. Although the majority of gradu- 
ates are actively engaged in family prac- 
tice, a significant number are pursuing 
an academic career. (Dr. Hill) 

Continuing Education 

This phase of the Maryland program is 
based on the philosophy that the edu- 
cation of the family physician must be a 
continuum throughout the entire ca- 
reer. These programs help to prepare 
family physicians from throughout 
Maryland to successfully pass each re- 
certification examination as required by 
the American Board of Family Practice. 

A variety of continuing education 
programs is offered, ranging from short 
didactic courses to extensive in-depth 
courses in system-oriented clinical sub- 
jects. Also offered are individually tai- 
lored courses designed to fulfill specific 
needs of a physician. Information on 
current and projected courses is avail- 
able at all times from the Department of 
Family Medicine or the Program of 
Continuing Medical Education. (Drs.

The Department of Medicine, or Inter- 
nal Medicine as it is called in some 
schools, teaches that body of medical 
knowledge which enables one to diag- 
nose and treat the illnesses of adults 
primarily with medicines rather than 
with operations. 

The practitioner of internal medi- 
cine is usually called an internist, but 
he or she may be referred to by the title 
physician, in the specialized use of the 
word which can also be applied to any 
medical doctor. A physician, used in 
this sense, may be a cardiologist, an en- 
docrinologist, a gastroenterologist. a 
rheumatologist, or a practitioner in one 
of the dozen or so specialties of internal 
medicine. But the internist always re- 
mains the physician (or the diagnosti- 
cian — as internists were called in past 
decades) whose special competence is 
solving difficult diagnostic problems 
and personally applying, or obtaining 
from a colleague, the best treatment 
available at the time. 

The term internal medicine, which 
derives from the German Innere Medi- 
;m. was first used during the 19th cen- 
tury when many American physicians 
travelled to Germany and Austria for 
training in what were then the leading 
clinics and medical laboratories. Ac- 
cording to one medical historian, 
"Within a decade or so after 1880. in- 
ternal medicine was differentiated from 
ordinary clinical medicine, the simple 
natural history of disease, by emphasiz- 
ing that it was based on experimental 
work in physiology and physiochemis- 
try." Internists have always required 
special training to acquire their knowl- 
edge and skills and have continuously 
shown a particular interest in the scien- 
tific basis of clinical work 

Educating medical practitioners for 
the state and the nation is the principal 
training responsibility of the faculty of 


the University ot Maryland's Depart- 
ment of Medicine, but it is also our aim 
to develop in some students a desire to 
make useful discoveries through basic 
or applied research. Fundamental ad- 
vances in the causes and treatment of 
disease have often been made by intern- 
ists for example, the work on choles- 
terol metabolism which in 1985 
brought the Nobel Prize in Medicine 
and Physiology to two internists, one a 
gastroenterologist and the other a ge- 
neticist. In keeping with this traditional 
devotion to the value of research, the 
Department of Medicine provides many 
opportunities for students to participate 
in research and strongly encourages all 
who may have an interest to experience 
the work of the investigator in one of 
our laboratories. 

Undergraduate Courses 

Second Year 
PDIA 520. History and Physical Ex- 
amination. Eliciting an accurate story 
of the patient's complaints, the history 
and detecting abnormal findings by 
physical examination constitute the 
fundamental skills of every physician. 
To acquire these abilities, students at- 
tend introductory lectures from mem- 
bers of the faculty; afterwards, groups 
of two students meet weekly with in- 
structors in one of the University of 
Maryland's teaching hospitals. The stu- 
dents interview and examine patients 
with a wide variety of illnesses, and 
then discuss the findings with their 
teacher who correlates the observations 
with pathophysiological abnormalities 
being studied in basic science courses. 

Third Year 
MEDC 530. Clinical Clerkship. This 
is the fundamental course in internal 
medicine for medical students. For 12 
weeks, the students work with the med- 
ical teams caring for inpatients at the 
department's two primary teaching hos- 
pitals, the University of Maryland Hos- 
pital and the Baltimore Veterans 
Administration Medical Center. Stu- 
dents join the interns, residents, and 
nurses for work rounds at 8:00 a.m. 
and participate in the daily conference 
with their attending physician from the 
faculty at 9:00 a.m. On Monday 
through Friday at 11:00 a.m. clinical 
clerks attend a student lecture delivered 
by members of the faculty designed to 
teach the most important subjects in in- 
ternal medicine during the 12-week 
course. At noon on Wednesdays and 
Fridays, students join the house officers 
and faculty at Medical Grand Rounds 
and the Morbidity and Mortality Con- 
ference. During the afternoons and eve- 
nings, clerks examine patients and 
evaluate laboratory data to develop di- 
agnosis and treatment programs with 
the house officers and faculty. 

At the University of Maryland Hos- 
pital, third-year students meet twice 
each week with their clinical precep- 
tors, faculty members chosen especially 
for the instruction of medical students. 
At these seminars, students present 
cases for advanced instruction in the 
pathophysiology and diagnosis of 

Fourth Year 
MEDC 548. Student Internship (Sub- 
internship in Medicine). Each fourth- 
year student takes a subinternship in 
medicine, pediatrics, surgery, or family 
practice. The student internship in in- 
ternal medicine occupies eight weeks, 
four of which must be spent on the 
general medical services at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Hospital or the Bal- 
timore Veterans Administration Medical 
Center. During the other four weeks, 
students may work at either of these 

hospitals or in the University of Mary- 
land Cancer Center, the Coronary Care 
Unit or the Medical Intensive Care Unit 
of the University of Maryland Hospital, 
or at one of the other hospitals affiliated 
with the University of Maryland. Stu- 
dent interns work as if they were gradu- 
ate physicians but under the close 
supervision of the resident and attend- 
ing physicians. Subinterns are on-call in 
the hospital with their resident physi- 
cians one out of four nights. The 
amount of responsibility delegated to 
subinterns depends upon the extent of 
each student's knowledge, dedication, 
and maturity. Successful completion of 
a subinternship in medicine prepares 
students particularly well for intern- 
ships in any subject. 
Laboratory and Clinical Research 
Electives. The faculty of the Depart- 
ment of Medicine strongly encourages 
all students to join them on a full-time 
or part-time basis to participate in re- 
search projects being conducted in the 
department. This experience may be 
scheduled at most times of the year. 
Students with an interest in investiga- 
tion should talk with members of the 
faculty or chairman about the many op- 
portunities for this work available in 
the Department of Medicine. 

Graduate Program 
House Officer Training. The Depart- 
ment of Medicine appoints each year 
approximately 30 leading members 
from the fourth-year class of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland and other medical 
schools to its internship at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Hospital and the Bal- 
timore Veterans Administration Medical 
Center. About 22 of the interns remain 
to become junior and senior residents. 
At the completion of three years of 
postgraduate training, house officers be- 
come eligible for certification as diplo- 
mates of the American Board of Internal 
Medicine. About eight of the interns 
leave the program after one year for res- 


idency training in specialties such as 
anesthesiology, dermatology, neurology, 
ophthalmology, and radiology. 

Interns and residents care for all the 
inpatients on the medical services at the 
University of Maryland's principal 
teaching hospitals under the guidance 
of the departments faculty. Throughout 
their training they also follow the medi- 
cal progress of a group of patients in the 
outpatient department. 

Continuing Medical Education 

The department and its specialty divi- 
sions sponsor several courses each year 
to inform graduate physicians about the 
most recent developments in the profes- 
sion. Physicians also are invited to at- 
tend the regular clinical and research 
conferences held by the specialty divi- 
sions and the weekly Medical Grand 
Rounds held on Wednesdays from 
12:15 to 1:15 p.m.

At the University of Maryland the con- 
cept of the primary care physician is 
that of an individual who is: 1) skilled 
in multiple facets of health/illness care, 
both acute and chronic; 2) an educator 
of peers, pupils and the public; 3) inter- 
ested in the impact of health care deliv- 
ery and able to effectively evaluate his 
or her own efforts as well as the efforts 
of others in this endeavor; 4) able to 
perform effectively in management de- 
cision making and planning; and 5) an 
active participant in the affairs of the 

It is the goal of the Primary Care In- 
ternal Medicine Program to prepare 
such a physician, beginning with pri- 
mary care elective experiences during 
the senior year and continuing with an 
extensive graduate medical education 
program. In addition to medical educa- 
tion, the division is responsible for the 
delivery of a wide range of primary 
health care services for ambulatory and 
hospitalized patients. 

Research Interests 

Through research grant support, health 
systems and health services research 
projects are being conducted. These 
projects include studies of the function, 
management and outcomes of a variety 
of medical practice organizations and 
research on hospital management and 
patient care. 

Undergraduate Courses 

Selected ambulatory primary care elec- 
tive experiences are offered as part of 
the senior ambulatory rotations in in- 
ternal medicine. For further informa- 
tion consult the Medicine section of the 
electives catalog. These primary care 
elective experiences occur both on 
campus and within the Area Health Ed- 
ucation Center (AHEC) program off 

Graduate Program 

The goal of the graduate medical educa- 
tion program in Primary Care Internal 
Medicine is the education and training 
of general internists who can be evalu- 
ated against the most stringent stan- 
dards of quality in terms of their 
function as complete physicians. Our 
intent is to prepare these physicians for 
a new and expanded health care deliv- 
ery role, and to be innovators in the de- 
velopment of improved health care 
services. Special learning experiences 
are encouraged and are presently avail- 
able in geriatrics, risk assessment and 
preventive counseling and health ser- 
vices research. Residents have the 
unique experience of being associated 
with a team of health care profession 
educators, practitioners and research 
workers throughout the program. The 
faculty include primary care internists, 
primary care nurse practitioners, clini- 
cal pharmacists, psychiatrists, psycho- 
logists and social workers. 

The Primary Care Internal Medicine 
Program meets the requirements for 
certification by the American Board of 
Internal Medicine, as well as providing 
a broad medical background and expe- 
riences in management, planning, 
teaching and evaluation of health care.

Graduate Program 

Postgraduate fellowships in Geographic 
Medicine are offered in conjunction 
with the Division of Infectious Diseases. 
Fellows spend their first year doing 
clinical rotations on the infectious dis- 
eases consultation services at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Medical System, the 
Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center, the Maryland Institute 
for Emergency Medical Services Sys- 
tems and the University of Maryland 
Cancer Center. The second year is spent 
in clinical or laboratory research under 
the supervision of faculty members in 
the division. 

Research may be conducted in the 
laboratories of the division in Baltimore 
or in one of the division's field areas in 
Chile, Peru, or Venezuela. The division 
is closely tied to the Center for Vaccine 
Development. Laboratories are fully 
equipped for work in molecular ge- 
netics, immunology, antigen purifica- 
tion, routine and enteric microbiology, 
parasitology (including animal studies), 
and antimicrobial sensitivity testing. 
Faculty research interests include the 
pathogenesis and epidemiology of en- 
teric organisms such as Vibrio cholerae 
and other vibrios, E. coli Salmonella, 
Shigella, Yersinia, rotavirus, Giardia, and 
Cryptosporidium. Much of the research 
effort is directed towards developing 
vaccines against these enteric pathogens 
as well as vaccine testing against ma- 
laria and AIDS. The division maintains 
a close relationship with the Depart- 
ment of Epidemiology and Preventive 
Medicine where fellows may take 
courses in epidemiology and biostatis- 
tics during their training. Application 
for fellowships is made through the di- 
vision head.

Undergraduate Courses 

Fourth Year 
INFE 541-01. Infectious Diseases 
Elective. The discipline of infectious 
diseases is uncommon in internal medi- 
cine in that it is not restricted to one 
organ system. Indeed the types of pa- 
tients seen by the Infectious Diseases 
Consultative Service are patients in vir- 
tually all departments of the hospital. 
These patients are often among the 
most acutely ill patients and/or the 
most difficult diagnostic enigmas within 
the hospital. These presentations are 
more than an academic challenge; many 
infectious diseases can be cured and the 
patient restored to previous health. 
The diagnosis of infections and 
proper management of patients with 
these diseases are taught by exposure of 
the student to practical, clinical, labora- 
tory and research problems. The stu- 
dent will see consultations under the 
supervision of a full-time teaching fel- 
low or medical resident. Attending 
rounds are made six times weekly. A 
weekly clinical infectious disease con- 
ference for faculty, house staff and stu- 
dents alternates between the University 
of Maryland Medical System and the 
Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center. Additionally student 
conferences covering common topics in 
infectious diseases are conducted by the 


postgraduate fellows twice weekly for 
all the students taking the elective at ei- 
ther hospital. Specialized programs are 
available in pediatrics, the Maryland In- 
stitute for Emergency Medical Services 
Systems, and the University of Mary- 
land Cancer Center. 

Postgraduate Fellowships 

The postgraduate fellowship is a two- 
year combined program offered by the 
Divisions of Infectious Diseases and 
Geographic Medicine. The first year is 
clinically oriented and is spent consult- 
ing on patients with problems related to 
infectious diseases. This experience is 
obtained through rotations at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Hospital, the Vet- 
erans Administration Medical Center, 
the Maryland Institute of Emergency 
Medical Services Systems, the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Cancer Center and in 
the Department of Pediatrics. The fel- 
low will see consults, supervise resi- 
dents, interns and medical students, 
and spend much of his her time teach- 
ing as well as in patient care. The sec- 
ond year of the program is oriented 
towards research and a third year for 
further research is recommended. Spe- 
cial interests in the division include 
pathogenesis of bacterial infections, in- 
fections in cancer patients or severely 
traumatized patients, nosocomial infec- 
tions and mechanisms of action and 
pharmacokinetics of antibiotics Ap- 
plication is made through the division

Second Year 
MEDC 525. Human Renal Physiol- 
ogy. This one-month minimester course 
allows full time concentration on renal 
and body fluid physiology with the stu- 
dents using themselves as laboratory 
subjects. Studies of renal function un- 
der different circumstances, mecha- 
nisms of water conservation, sodium 
balance and acid base balance will be 
studied. Laboratory sessions are held 
daily. Appropriate case presentations 
will illustrate disturbances of physiol- 
ogy This class is limited to 16 students 
and offers an opportunity for prolonged 
and close contact with Division of 
Nephrology faculty as well as experi- 
ence in laboratory measurements and 
observations of renal function through 
personal in vivo testing. 

Fourth Year 
NEPH 541-01. Clinical Nephrology 
Elective. Students who have completed 
their required junior electives in medi- 
cine, surgery, pediatrics and obstetrics 
may elect a clinical rotation in nephrol- 
ogy One-month to three-month elec- 
tives will be accepted. The student is 
expected to become thoroughly familiar 
with the approach to patients with 
kidney diseases and acquainted with 
clinical procedures. Each student will 
present at one nephrology conference. 
The typical rotation involves the stu- 
dent in seeing consultations with fel- 
lows and attending nephrologists, 

rounds on m-patients. Renal Clinic ac- 
tivities and exposure to the dialysis pro- 
gram. Students with special interest in 
particular aspects of kidney function or 
kidney disease may be permitted to 
pursue those after consultation with the 
division head. 

NEPH 541-03. Nephrology Student 
Fellowship Elective. Maryland Gen- 
eral Hospital. Students are exposed to 
the practice of clinical nephrology and 
to the management of acute and 
chronic renal failure. 

Postgraduate Fellowships 

Qualified physicians may apply for full- 
time fellowships in nephrology. Al- 
though a one-year clinical fellowship 
may be specially arranged, the standard 
fellowship is for two years of training. 
The first year is structured to produce 
broad experience in clinical nephrol- 
ogy, its procedures and its literature. 
Basic experience in the research lab is 
provided. The second year is largely 
elective, permitting fellows to pursue 
their chosen direction with planning 
and supervision. Additional years of ex- 
perience for those undertaking special 
projects are available. Fellows complet- 
ing this program are qualified and pre- 
pared to be certified in nephrology. The 
renal fellowship provides full clinical 
responsibility for numerous complex 
problems in renal pathophysiology, in 
the management of dialysis patients and 
the care of patients undergoing kidney 
transplantation. The laboratory offers 
experience in studies of renal metabo- 
lism/function interrelationships and im- 
munologic studies of kidney disease. 
The fellow is given significant responsi- 
bilitv in teaching third- and fourth-year 
students and in the supervision of resi- 
dents on the consulting service.

Undergraduate Courses 

Fourth Year 
MEDC 549-01. Medical Oncology 
Elective. Medical oncology provides 
students and postgraduate physicians 
with in-depth studies of the diagnosis, 
natural history and treatment of human 
cancers. In particular, patients with 
neoplastic diseases are treated accord- 
ing to treatment programs illustrating 
the opportunities for physical and emo- 
tional treatment and support of patients 
with cancer. Clerkships in oncology 
provide close interactions with fellows 
and oncology attendings for a one-on- 
one experience. The wide diversity of 
internal medicine diseases seen during 
the natural history of many cancers 
makes this an intense course in the 
treatment of many internal medicine 
problems common to adult patients. 
Clerkships on the consult services show 
the interaction with other specialties as 
well as the early detection, diagnosis 
and staging. The many weekly con- 
ferences provide didactic information 
about natural history, new treatments 
and evolutionary changes in the labora- 
tory understanding of neoplasia.

Undergraduate Courses 
First Year 
MPHY 501. Members of the division 

take part in teaching the physiology 
course with emphasis on the clinical ap- 
plication to basic respiratory physiol- 
ogy. This includes an introduction to 
clinical medicine and the sessions in 
the course on correlative medicine. 

Second Year 
PATH 520. In the systemic pathology 
course, two weeks are devoted to the 
respiratory system. The teaching of 
clinical medicine is integrated with epi- 
demiology, pharmacology and micro- 
biology, and is closely correlated with 
the teaching of physiology and pathol- 
ogy. This is not a course in respiratory 
diseases, but the most common and im- 
portant groups of diseases are included. 

Fourth Year 
PULM 541-01. Pulmonary Diseases 
Elective. Fourth-year students partici- 
pate in all of the activities of the divi- 
sion under the supervision of fellows 
and faculty. They see patients in the 
wards, in consultations, and in the out- 
patient clinic. The students learn to in- 
terpret tests of pulmonary function and 
attend all of the conferences in which 
fellows and faculty participate. The em- 
phasis is on the correlation of clinical 
features with pathophysiologic and 
roentgenographic (eatures. 
PULM 541-05. Medical Intensive 
Care Elective, University of Maryland 
Hospital. The goal of this course is to 
provide students with clinical experi- 
ence in managing patients seen in a 
medical intensive care unit. Students 
will function at the intern level as pri- 
mary physicians and will work with the 
resident in charge, as well as the attend- 
ing physician. Students will receive a 

sound background in circulatory and 
respiratory physiology. They will be ex- 
posed to various invasive techniques, 
including arterial line insertions, Swan- 
Ganz catheterizations and chest tube 
placements. In addition there will be 
exposure to the use of mechanical ven- 
tilation in the critically ill patient. 

Postgraduate Fellowships 

Stipends are available for the support of 
six fellows at the current University of 
Maryland Medical System postgraduate 
scale. Three years of training in internal 
medicine are required. The goal of the 
program is to train physicians who are 
competent in the subspecialty of pul- 
monary and critical care medicine, and 
in basic or clinical investigation

Fourth-Year Students and House 

The Rheumatology Division offers sev- 
eral electives for senior medical stu- 
dents and medical house officers 
designed to present the spectrum ot 
rheumatic disease and approaches to 
diagnosis and management. Integration 
of clinical features with the mechanisms 
of disease processes is accomplished 
through informal tutorial sessions as 
well as didactic lectures. The rationale 
for the various management programs 
including drug therapies, physical med- 
icine and orthopaedic surgery is em- 
phasized. Experience is gained in 
performance of diagnostic procedures 
(e.g., arthrocentesis) and in interpreta- 
tion of relevant laboratory data. 

Postgraduate Fellowships 

The Division of Rheumatology and 
Clinical Immunology offers a three-year 
fellowship which emphasizes training in 
both the clinical and research aspects of 
rheumatology. The purpose of the fel- 
lowship is to produce M.D. scientists 
who are well trained clinically and sci- 
entifically and who are dedicated to an 
academic, research-oriented career. 
Three years of prior training in internal 
medicine are required.

Training in microbiology and immunol- 
ogy within the medical school curricu- 
lum occurs primarily during the 
sophomore year when all students are 
required to take medical microbiology 
and immunology. Emphasis is placed 
on medical aspects of microbiology and 
immunology. In addition, elective 
courses specifically designed for medi- 
cal students and selected Graduate 
School courses are available to medical 
students in all years. Individual faculty 
members are available to provide in- 
struction and guidance throughout the 
medical curriculum. 

The department also offers the PhD 
degree. Although the MS degree may be 
offered in special instances, priority will 
be given to PhD aspirants. This depart- 
ment encourages students to enroll in 
the MD/PhD program. 

Research Interests 

The research programs within the De- 
partment of Microbiology and Immu- 
nology reflect its orientation towards 
the broad biology of infectious and 
parasitic diseases. Projects include mo- 
lecular and basic immunology, immu- 
nopathology, host-parasite interactions 
at the cellular and orgamsmal levels, ge- 
netics and pathogenesis, field ecology 
and epidemiology and intervention 
mechanisms such as vaccine develop- 
ment and field trial. Emphasis has been 
on, but is not limited to, vector-borne 
rickettsial, viral and parasitic (malaria) 
agents. A new program focusing on 
viral and immunological diseases of the 
CNS is under development and will be 
a collaborative effort with the Depart- 
ment of Neurology. Medical students 
may participate for elective credit in the 
research programs within the depart- 
ment. The department serves as a 
World Health Organization Collab- 
orating Center for Rickettsial Reference 
and Research. 

Undergraduate Medical 

Second Year 
MMIC 520. Medical Microbiology 
and Immunology (8). First semester. 
Though the precise time distribution 
will vary throughout the course, there 
will be an average of five lecture hours 
and seven hours in laboratory and 
group conferences per week. This 
course begins with an introduction to 
basic principles of immunology and 
then proceeds to consider the major 
groups of bacteria, spirochetes, fungi, 
nckettsiae, viruses and parasites that 
cause human disease. Emphasis is 
placed upon an analysis of the proper- 
ties of microorganisms thought to be 
important in pathogenesis of infection 
and interaction with host mechanisms, 
epidemiology, and control measures. 


Students are encouraged to take elective 
work throughout their training. The fol- 
lowing are designed specifically for 
medical students: 

MMIC 514. Medical Zoology and Par- 
asitology. (Drs. Traub, Myers and 

MMIC 589. Research in Microbiol- 
ogy. (Staff) 

A number of Graduate School courses 
are also available to qualified students. 
Interested students should contact the 
department for details.

Neurology is the study of the normal 
and diseased nervous system that in- 
cludes central, peripheral and neu- 
romuscular systems. Faculty members 
participate in courses in all four years of 
undergraduate medical education. 
While only a relative few medical stu- 
dents will choose careers in medical or 
surgical neurology, or in the basic neu- 
rosciences, all medical giaduates must 
have sufficient understanding of the 
basic structure and function of the 
nervous system to perform a satisfac- 
tory neurological examination, recog- 
nize and treat the many common 
neurological disorders, and to know- 
when to refer the patient to a neu- 
rological specialist. Of special impor- 
tance is the ability to distinguish 
between functional and organic neu- 
rological symptoms or signs. 

The discipline of neurology has 
maintained close ties with basic science 
and by its complex but logical nature, 
has typified the scholarly aspects of 
medicine. Recent methodological and 
scientific advances have created a new 
and therapeutically oriented specialty 
which is represented in the philosophy 
and goals of this department 

Research Interests 

Research activities, at both the basic 
neuroscience and the clinical levels, 
play an important role in the activity of 
the department. A broad program in 
neuro-immunology and biology is un- 
der way. The department holds a de- 
myelinating diseases clinical center 
grant from NIH and in the last four 
years has been one of the most active 
centers in the United States and Europe 
in the conduct of trials of new forms of 
therapy for multiple sclerosis. Basic 
science and clinical studies in the de- 
myelinating diseases are closely inte- 
grated. Several department members 
are active also in the study of cere- 
brovascular disease and its con- 
sequences. A clinical stroke center 
funded by NIH has also been estab- 
lished. Special emphasis has been 
placed on the application of computer 
sciences to the diagnosis and treatment 
of stroke and a strong departmental 
program studies language disorders. A 
very active program in diseases of pe- 
ripheral nerve and muscle has been un- 
dertaken as well. Special emphasis has 
been placed on the pathogenesis of 
Guillain-Barre syndrome and the treat- 
ment of myasthenia gravis. A newly de- 
veloped program is focused on epilepsy 
with special interest in cases that fail 
medical therapy and must be consid- 
ered for neurosurgery. 

An expanded program in neuro- 
rehabilitation has been developed. Re- 
habilitation sites for neurologically 
damaged patients are at Montebello and 
Kernan Hospitals in Baltimore. Spe- 
cialized research programs are being 
developed primarily in the rehabilita- 
tion of stroke, head injury and multiple 
sclerosis patients. 


Undergraduate Medical 

First and Second Years 
NEUR 510. Neurological Sciences I. 

Lecture demonstrations of clinical cases 
constitute an integral part of this 
course. There is emphasis on correla- 
tion of anatomy and physiology with 
clinical material. Neurologic aspects of 
physical diagnosis are taught in the sec- 
ond year of medical school with in- 
struction in performance of the normal 
neurologic examination as well as ex- 
amination of selected patients with neu- 
rologic disorders. (Drs. T. Price and 
G. Sutton) 

NEUR 520. Neurological Sciences II. 
In collaboration with the Department of 
Pathology, and with contributions from 
other clinical and basic science depart- 
ments, there is a correlative course 
given in the second year of medical 
school in which pathology of the ner- 
vous system is correlated with clinical 
disease. (Dr. D. Camenga) 
Third Year 
NEUR 530. Neurological Sciences III. 
All members of the third-year class have 
a three-week clerkship on the neurol- 
ogy-neurosurgery service at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Medical System/ 
Hospital or the Baltimore Veterans Ad- 
ministration Medical Center. A didactic 
series of lecture-demonstrations is given 
by the neurology and neurosurgery fac- 
ulty, and students attend the combined 
conferences in both disciplines. In addi- 
tion, students attend rounds and may 
assist in the performance of some pro- 
cedures. Under house staff and attend- 
ing staff supervision, students are 
responsible for the care of patients with 
neurological disorders. 

NEUR 541. Clinical Electives. After 
completion of the third year, students 
are offered a variety of clinical experi- 
ences on the neurological service at: 
University of Maryland Medical System/ 
Hospital, Mercy Hospital, Montebello 
Rehabilitation Center, St. Agnes Hospi- 
tal, Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center and York (Pa.) Hospital. 
The neurologic examination of the pa- 
tient is emphasized, as well as the study 
and application of a wide variety of spe- 
cialized neurologic diagnostic tech- 
niques. Each student will become 
proficient in the taking of a neurologic 
history, the performance of the neu- 
rologic exam, the formulation of a rea- 
sonable diagnostic impression or 
differential diagnosis, a plan of inves- 
tigation and management for several of 
the more common neurologic prob- 
lems. (Dr. C.L. Koski) 
NEUR 548. Neurological Research 
Electives. In all four undergraduate 
years, a limited number of students will 
have the opportunity to work with in- 
dividual members of the department in 
the following areas: 1) cerebrovascular 
physiology; 2) neuromuscular research; 
3) neurophysiology; 4) vascular ultra- 
structure (SEM and TEM); 5) neu- 
rochemistry; 6) neurovirology; 

7) autonomic nervous system; and 

8) computers and neurology. Through 
involvement in ongoing research, the 
student will learn the principles and 
methods of investigating a problem. In 
some instances, especially with the 
longer electives, publication of results 
will be possible. (Dr. R.F. Mayer) 


Students who have completed their 
first, second or third years and have an 
interest in neurologic sciences may ap- 
ply for additional training in clinical 
neurology or in one of the research lab- 
oratories of the department. Qualified 
students may receive remuneration as 
fellows for the ten-week fellowships 
taken during vacation periods. 

Graduate Studies 

There is a fully approved three-year 
training program in the specialty of 
neurology at the University of Maryland 
Medical System/Hospital. This provides 
for clinical training as well as rotation 
through the associated basic science 
disciplines. In addition, fellowships are 
available for subspecialty neurology 
training, such as EEG and EMG. For 
further information contact the depart- 
ment chairperson.

The University of Maryland School of 
Medicine has developed a research and 
training center in the area of neurologic 
rehabilitation with the full knowledge 
that current life-saving expertise in the 
fields of trauma (head and spinal cord 
injury), combined with major tech- 
nological advances in medical and sur- 
gical neurology, has yielded and will 
continue to yield the most severely dis- 
abled persons. There is no indication 
that the incidence of neurological dis- 
ability will decrease; more likely it will 

The Division of Rehabilitation is 
committed to the education of medical 
students, resident physicians, physical 
therapists and other allied health pro- 
fessionals. Expectations for the next 
decade indicate that the rehabilitation 
field in this country is not going to wait 
for residency programs to train the 
physiatrists needed to provide profes- 
sional direction for neurological reha- 
bilitation programs. Accordingly, 
neurological rehabilitation probably will 
depend on other neurologists, intern- 
ists, pediatricians, and neurological and 
orthopedic surgeons — to carry the 
load. These physicians will need not 
only appropriate training in rehabilita- 
tion management, but exposure to the 
frontiers of fundamental research in 
neuroscience, particularly in the areas 
of neuroplasticity and recovery of func- 
tion. To this end a two-year fellowship 
program in neurologic rehabilitation 
has been established.

The Department of Obstetrics and 
Gynecology emphasizes three areas of 
concern: education, research and 

Educationally, the department pro- 
vides a learning experience that encour- 
ages each student, regardless of 
ultimate career choice, to develop pro- 
fessional attitudes, diagnostic skills and 
knowledge relevant to the human 
female and to her sexual reproductive 
system. This experience enables each 
student to assume more effective re- 
sponsibility for the general delivery of 
health care to the adolescent, to the 
adult and aging female and to the 

The student is taught to recognize 
more accurately those patients who re- 
quire special gynecologic consultation. 
Health-related social problems such as 
family planning are discussed as well as 
other aspects of population control, 
sexual difficulties, sterilization and in- 
duced abortion. 

The educational material is pre- 
sented so as to familiarize students with 
all sources of knowledge relevant to 
these subject areas. Students may ex- 
tend their knowledge and skills in a di- 
rection and depth appropriate to 
current and ultimate career goals. Stu- 
dents are also encouraged to take elec- 
tives in basic, clinical and social 

The service roles focus on the gen- 
eral areas of obstetrical and gynecologic 
care. Obstetrics deals with a high-risk 
pregnancy population and provides ex- 
cellent educational opportunities for 
both student and resident. Specialty 
clinics in endocrinology, complicated 
pregnancy, cancer, pre- and postopera- 
tive evaluation, and family planning 
provide specific, specialized areas of in- 
struction in addition to serving large 
numbers of patients. Cancer detection 
and therapy plays a major part in the 
gynecologic program. 

The department utilizes audiovisual 
aids to enhance the educational experi- 
ence of both medical students and resi- 
dents. The faculty also contributes to 
the postgraduate educational programs 
at the University of Maryland Medical 
System/Hospital and throughout the 

Undergraduate Medical 

Third Year 
OBST 530. Clinical Clerkship. Stu- 
dents are assigned to obstetrics and 
gynecology for a period of six weeks. As 
clinical clerks they participate in the 
original diagnostic studies, pelvic surgi- 
cal procedures and postoperative care 
of hospitalized patients. Instruction in 
prenatal and gynecologic outpatient 
care is accomplished in the outpatient 
department. Seminars and departmental 
conferences with the attending staff and 
house officers are employed for teach- 
ing the art of correlating observations, 
diagnosis and therapy. Frequent and 
close contact with faculty is achieved by 
means of a preceptorial system which 
assigns a group of two or three students 
to a member of the faculty for the en- 
tire clerkship. As an alternative to the 
clerkship at the University of Maryland 
Medical System/Hospital, a similar in- 
structional program is offered to a lim- 
ited number of students by the 
obstetrics and gynecology departments 
at Mercy, South Baltimore General and 
St. Agnes Hospitals. (Staff) 

Fourth-Year Electives 
OBST 541. Obstetrics and Gynecol- 
ogy Elective. The student may choose 
to spend a four-week elective in one of 
five subspecialty areas which include 
high-risk obstetrics, endocrinology, on- 
cology, ambulatory ob/gyn and human 
genetics. (Staff) 

Affiliated Hospitals. Electives are 
available at Mercy, South Baltimore 
General and Sinai Hospitals.

The Department of Ophthalmology of- 
fers electives during the junior and se- 
nior years in clinical ophthalmology 
and research ophthalmology. For the 
clinical clerkship, time is divided 
among the outpatient clinic, ward and 
operating room. Students are expected 
to gam experience with diagnostic in- 
struments used in ophthalmological 
evaluations. Patients with a wide range 
of diseases are seen in the clinic where 
faculty with expertise in all ophthal- 
mological subspecialty areas are pres- 
ent. Conferences and grand rounds are 
included in the program. Self-instruc- 
tional aids are available. 

Research Interests 

Research efforts of the Department of 
Ophthalmology currently concentrate 
on ocular changes from diabetes 
melhtus and ocular toxicity of radiant 
energy. Other projects include bio- 
chemical effects of aldose reductase and 
specific inhibitors on the lens, includ- 
ing oxygen toxicity to the lens, par- 
ticularly as related to light-induced 
damage. Also, projects related to hor- 
monal control of retinal pigment epi- 
thelium, as well as experimental ocular 
pathology, form a major part of our re- 
search program. Opportunities exist for 
elective participation by qualified stu- 
dents in this active program of 
ophthalmic biochemical research. 
Postdoctoral fellowships in ophthalmic 
biochemistry are also available. 

Graduate Program 

A three-year residency program provid- 
ing clinical training is offered at the 
University of Maryland Medical System, 
with rotations to Mercy Hospital and 
the Wilmington, Delaware VA Medical 
Center. Appointment is by application 
to the Department of Ophthalmology, 
University of Maryland Medical System. 

Postgraduate Program 

Special courses for both nonspecialists 
and ophthalmologists are given at 
various times throughout the year by 
the Program of Continuing Medical

The primary goal of the Department of 
Pathology is the better understanding of 
human disease with emphasis on mech- 
anisms of disease and changes occur- 
ring at the subcellular level and in 
molecular terms. The student achieves 
this goal in three phases: 1) by acquir- 
ing the basic principles of pathology 
and applying those principles to the di- 
agnosis and study of health care deliv- 
ery as expressed in diagnostic areas 
such as surgical pathology, clinical pa- 
thology, cytology, forensic pathology 
and autopsy pathology; 2) by establish- 
ing a philosophy of critical evaluation 
and judgment concerning the problems 
of health and disease in humans; and 
3) by developing feelings of personal re- 
sponsibility and ethics for the practice 
of medicine. 

The department's philosophy is that 
the study of disease includes both 
structure and function and is carried 
out from the level of the patient to that 
of the molecule. 

The student is exposed to anatomi- 
cal and clinical hospital pathology ser- 
vices with additional training at 
Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center and other local 

Research Interests 

Research efforts in the Department of 
Pathology focus upon the pathobiologic 
mechanisms of human disease at the 
cellular, subcellular and molecular lev- 
els. Current projects involve a broad 
spectrum of diseases to include cancer, 
immunologic disease, heart disease, 
shock, infectious disease and aging. 

Cancer research efforts focus upon 
accurately defining the sequence of 
events within cells following their ex- 
posure to confirmed carcinogens, muta- 
gens and environmental toxins. This 
involves the development of varied 
strategies for assaying human risk from 
environmental pollutants and the de- 
velopment of animal and fish models 
for human disease with environmental 


Research efforts in heart disease are 
directed toward providing a definitive 
description of the mechanisms which 
lead to cell death subsequent to the de- 
pletion or complete loss of oxygen sup- 
ply. Identification of parameters whose 
manipulation might result in impeding 
or halting cell death and development 
of improved methods of therapy for 
preventing the damaging effects of 
shock are integral components of this 

Faculty research projects in infec- 
tious diseases focus on the delineation 
of the mechanism by which microbes 
invade and destroy human cells; the 
identification of microbial antigens with 
the capacity to elicit an autoimmune 
disease in the host; the study of mecha- 
nisms of immunologic injury as related 
to complement-mediated lysis; immune 
complex diseases and autoimmunity; 
and the analysis of the events leading to 
cell death as a consequence of the nor- 
mal process of aging. 

Undergraduate Medical 

Second Year 
PATH 501. General and Systemic Pa- 
thology. The essentials of pathology are 
covered in such a way as to form a 
good foundation for the student's con- 
tinuing medical education. The course 
is divided into "general" or pathobiol- 
ogy and systemic pathology. It starts 
with the study of the basic principles of 
pathology as embodied in the areas of 
cell injury, inflammation, immuno- 
pathology, neoplasia, and environmen- 
tal and forensic pathology. This is 
followed by the study of diseases of the 
various organ systems. Interdepartmen- 
tal seminar-type presentations are given 
covering broad areas that are of interest 
to various disciplines. Clinical input is 
given through correlative sessions 
stressing mechanisms of disease. The 
course consists of lectures, small group 
laboratories and seminars. The labora- 
tory sessions are in smaller groups un- 
der the direction of faculty members 
assigned to each student group. (Drs. 
Trump and Hall-Craggs) 


Supplementing the core program are 
more than 20 course offerings for fresh- 
man, sophomore and senior medical 
students. These opportunities span a 
wide range of departmental activities 
from system-oriented courses such as 
renal, pulmonary, neurological or car- 
diovascular pathology to process- 
oriented instruction such as environ- 
mental pathology, carcinogenesis and 
research seminars. The latter are con- 
ducted with the aid of a number of 
guest speakers who are leading au- 
thorities in their fields. Research and 
clinical preceptorships are encouraged. 

Other courses are of more general 
interest and include seminars in clinical 
pathology or clinical clerkships in Bal- 
timore area hospitals. Medical students 
also have access to courses in experi- 
mental pathology such as histochemis- 
try, tissue culture or pathological 

Most of the aforementioned courses, 
conforming with the 4-1-4-1 arrange- 
ment of the freshman and sophomore 
years, are offered in January and June 
while others are given during the regu- 
lar semester as longitudinal electives. 
For course listing, time and content de- 
scription consult the pathology section 
in the appropriate elective catalogs. 

Advanced Accelerated Program in Pa- 
thology (AAPP). The AAPP admitted 
the first group of students in the fall of 
1975 in an effort to permit early spe- 
cialization and target-oriented educa- 
tion. The track in pathology begins in 
the freshman year. It makes use of all 
the resources of the Department of Pa- 
thology, and includes three types of ex- 
perience: 1) exposure to the practice of 
pathology; 2) study of one selected field 
of study; and 3) exposure to research of 
disease. Five students are admitted dur- 
ing their first year. They are required to 
fulfill all the requirements of the medi- 
cal school program; however, they are 
not pledged to seek a career in the field 
of pathology The training in the track 
program should provide the student 
with the knowledge of a one-year resi- 
dency program. Time spent in training 
within the track program can count to- 
wards elective or residency time. (Drs. 
Mergner and Dawson) 


Graduate Program 
MS or PhD Degree. The graduate pro- 
gram offers training and instruction in 
modern experimental pathology. Par- 
ticular fields of interest presented are: 
instruction in pathological biochemis- 
try, electron microscopy, immu- 
nopathology, histochemistry, tissue 
culture and physiology, as well as the 
various fields generally considered 
within clinical pathology. 
MD/PhD Combined. Interested stu- 
dents should consult the department 
chairperson. For details of course offer- 
ings and admission requirements, see 
the pathology section in the Graduate 
School catalog.

The efforts of the Department of Pedi- 
atrics are directed towards providing 
the best possible services for children 
while deriving an educational program 
to meet the needs of individual stu- 
dents, physicians and other health care 
workers. By preparing physicians and 
other health care professionals to pro- 
vide high quality, comprehensive care 
for infants, children and adolescents, 
the department can best satisfy the vital 
need for child health services in the 
community. Included among the pro- 
viders of health care are not only pedi- 
atric generahsts, but also basic 
scientists, health educators, subspecial- 
lsts, medical center academicians, com- 
munity health planners and students of 
all of these disciplines. The Department 
of Pediatrics seeks to play a dynamic 
role in the development of these health 
professionals throughout all levels of 
their education: undergraduate, gradu- 
ate and postgraduate. 

A clinical clerkship experience is of- 
fered with inpatients, full-term infants 
and ambulatory patients. A wide vari- 
ety of electives is also available which 
provide opportunities to explore as- 
pects of preclinical and clinical pedi- 
atric research, additional individualized 
inpatient and ambulatory clinical clerk- 
ships, specific preceptorships, sub- 
specialty experiences and community 

Research Interests 

The research efforts of the Department 
of Pediatrics are directed toward under- 
standing problems related to abnormal 
development. These studies employ so- 
phisticated research strategies and the 
newest technical equipment to obtain 
answers to problems in the perinatal, 
neonatal, childhood and adolescent pe- 
riods. Several major categories of re- 
search include an investigation into the 
causes and treatments of mental retar- 
dation, a multidisciplinary examination 
of the various aspects of the sudden in- 
fant death syndrome, the examination 
of immunological and microbiological 
factors associated with problems of 
early development, a series of studies 
related to neonatal metabolism and a 
well-defined group of psychological 
studies. These and other research 
efforts have been successfully integrated 
into the service and teaching program 
within the department.

ties provides clinical experience in in- 
patient pediatrics (including nurseries) 
as well as in ambulatory services for 
children and adolescents. 

Regularly scheduled conferences in- 
clude pediatric subspecialty areas and 
are supplemented with chart con- 
ferences, case discussions, evaluations 
of neonatal mortality and journal re- 
views. Small group tutorials cover con- 
cepts of pathophysiology and the 
therapeutic management of pediatric 
patients. The total impact of the illness 
on the child and family is emphasized. 
The student is encouraged to become 
familiar with all aspects of pediatric 
practice. (Dr. Nair)

The departments objectives are to teach 
undergraduate medical students those 
principles underlying the distribution, 
metabolism, mechanism of action and 
toxicity of therapeutic agents or sub- 
stances. At the graduate level, three 
areas of studies are incorporated: 
1) training in the modern techniques of 
pharmacology (molecular biology, re- 
ceptor biochemistry, cell biology, tissue 
culture, radioimmunoassay, electron 
microscopy, traditional electrophysiol- 
ogy, patch clamping, etc.); 2) research 
directed toward study of new drugs and 
increasing effectiveness of existing 
drugs used in treatment of human dis- 
eases (e.g., in areas of virology, oncol- 
ogy, neuropeptides); and 3) research to 
better understand actions of drugs and 
toxins (e.g., drugs acting at the neu- 
romuscular junction or elsewhere in the 
central and peripheral nervous system, 
endocrine drugs, chemotherapeutic 
agents, insecticides). 

The Graduate School catalog lists a 
number of graduate courses and elec- 
tives offered to medical students. Ar-

The goal of undergraduate psychiatric 
education is to acquire an understand- 
ing of and an appreciation for the ap- 
plication of behavioral and psychiatric 
principles in patient care and health 
maintenance through an exposure to a 
progressive sequence of intellectual 
stimulations, clinical experiences and 
appropriate professional socialization. 
More specifically, the curriculum aims 
to assist the student in: 1) acquiring a 
foundation of knowledge regarding the 
psychological, sociological and human- 
istic aspects of the practice of medicine; 
2) mastering basic interpersonal and 
psychiatric skills relevant to the man- 
agement of patients with medical and/or 

emotional illness; 3) emulating atti- 
tudes and values which enhance the 
professional roles and practices of a 

The curriculum is divided into a 
core program which consists of re- 
quired courses offered during the first 
three years of medical education and an 
electives program which provides a va- 
riety of courses (clinical, didactic and 
research) for the students who are in- 
terested in furthering their knowledge 
and experience in some aspect of the 
theory and practice of psychiatry and 
its related fields. These elective courses 
are offered during the January and June 
mmimesters of the preclinical years and 
in the senior year. The four-year Com- 
bined Accelerated Program in Psychia- 
try (CAPP) is offered as an advanced 
elective track to selected students with 
a special interest in the behavioral 

Undergraduate Medical 

First Year 
PSYCH 510. Behavioral and Social 
Sciences. (72 hours). This inter- 
disciplinary course provides a context 
for the integration of diverse behavioral 
science contributions which are rele- 
vant to the understanding of human be- 
havior. Emphasis is on the emergence of 
a broader concept of life sciences that 
constitutes medicine, one that views the 
human organism holistically as a dy- 
namic biological system whose inherent 
aspects of structure, organization, on- 
togeny and functioning are determined 
or influenced by developmental, intra- 
psychic, interpersonal and sociocultural 
factors. The course runs through both 
semesters for a total of 72 hours; 42 
hours in the fall semester and 30 hours 
in the spring semester. 

The purpose of the course is to as- 
sist students in: 1) acquiring a founda- 
tion of knowledge in psychological, 
sociological, and humanistic aspects of 
the practice of medicine based on the 
study of the behavioral and social sci- 
ences and clinical psychiatry; 2) learn- 

ing about the behavioral aspects of 
human development which change 
throughout the life cycle; 3) under- 
standing physician-patient interaction 
in various clinical situations including 
death and dying; and learning about 
basic psychophysiology of emotions 
and human interaction. 

The course is presented in the form 
of lectures-presentations and small 
group sessions. Small group sessions 
are scheduled on a weekly basis 
throughout both semesters. Their pur- 
pose is to provide students with the op- 
portunity to apply the concepts learned 
in class to medical practice situations. 

First Semester: This section provides 
basic introductory concepts in the field 
of behavioral and social sciences, and is 
designed primarily to meet the needs of 
those students whose premedical cur- 
riculum did not allow sufficient ex- 
posure to these sciences. The central 
theme is man as an individual viewed 
from a developmental, intrapersonal, 
interpersonal and humanistic view- 
point, and his passage through the 
vicissitudes of the family life cycle. 
These basic dimensions of behavior are 
presented in the following course units: 

1) human growth and development and 

2) psychological, sociological, and 
cultural aspects of health, illness and 

Second Semester: This section views 
man in his transactions with the en- 
vironment and in the context of larger 
systems. Its major focus is on the psy- 
chological, interpersonal, and socio- 
cultural aspects of illness and health 
care. Course units include: 1) physician- 
patient interaction and 2) issues of 
dying, death and grief. 


Second Year 

The goal of sophomore psychiatry is to 
provide students with basic psychiatric 
interviewing skills and with a founda- 
tion of clinical knowledge in the area of 
psychopathology and psychiatric diag- 
nosis as a preparation for their junior 
clerkship in psychiatry. This sequence 
is organized around two courses as 

This course is part of the Introduc- 
tion to Clinical Practice (ICP) which is 
devoted to specialty physical diagnosis 
and examination (psychiatry, pedi- 
atrics, and neurology). 

The psychiatric course is devoted to 
psychiatric interviewing, history taking, 
and mental status examination. Rota- 
tion is two-hours a week for six weeks 
(12 hours), which is offered during the 
fall semester for 12 weeks (two rota- 
tions) on Friday afternoon and again in 
the spring semester for another 12 
weeks (two rotations) on Friday 

The course uses a small group for- 
mat, in which groups of five or six stu- 
dents meet with an instructor for six 
two-hour sessions. In the first session 
the instructor reviews the general prin- 
ciples and goals of psychiatric inter- 
viewing and mental status examination, 
and interviews a volunteer psychiatric 
patient from the inpatient service in the 
small group. Each week thereafter each 
student interviews another patient be- 
fore his small group. Following the in- 
terview, the group discusses the 
interviewing technique, and describes 
the psychopathology elicited by history 
and mental status. Each week, as an as- 
signment, the students write up either a 
comprehensive mental status examina- 
tion of the interview they witness or a 
complete psychiatric history with men- 
tal status included. The write-ups are 
corrected by the instructors and re- 
turned to the students as an important 
source of feedback in improvement. 

Instructors in small groups video- 
tape the interviews. The tape is re- 
viewed in the following session before a 
new patient is interviewed. 

There are about 30 students per six- 
week rotation, assigned to seven groups 
(five to six students per group). 
PSYCH 520. (60 hours). This course is 
designed to provide students with the 
basic concepts of clinical psychiatry in- 
cluding psychopathology and psychi- 
atric treatment modalities. It is 
scheduled in a two-week block at the 
beginning of the spring semester. 

The course format is based on brief 
lectures, audiovisual demonstrations 
(videotapes, films), and small group 
sessions. At the beginning of the course 
each student is given an instruction 
handbook, handouts, reprints, outlines, 
and a list of videotapes to be presented. 

Clinical Years 
PSYCH 530. Junior Psychiatry Clerk- 
ship. (6 weeks). The clinical clerkship 
in psychiatry is the main clinical psy- 
chiatric experience of a University of 
Maryland medical graduate. It is usu- 
ally taken in the third year and is a six- 
week intensive experience usually com- 
bining inpatient and outpatient work in 
which the student is exposed to a vari- 
ety of psychopathologies as well as a va- 
riety of treatment modalities. Under the 
preceptorship of a psychiatry resident 
and a ward attending, the student is as- 
signed his own patients and families to 
work with. This involvement with and 
responsibility for patient and family 
provide an ideal setting in which the 
student, under supervision, can apply 
the psychosocial concepts he learned in 
his first year of behavioral sciences, 
with the concepts of psychopathology 
he learns in his second year and the 
clinical skills of psychiatric interview- 
ing, history taking and mental status 
examination. Usually the student be- 
comes an integral part of the ward mi- 
lieu and treatment team. 

The clerkship involves student as- 
signments to the following training 

sites: Institute of Psychiatry and Human 
Behavior (IPHB), Walter P. Carter Cen- 
ter, Spring Grove Hospital and Bal- 
timore Veterans Administration Medical 

Students rotating at the IPHB are 
assigned to both inpatient adult wards 
(two students per ward) and Brief 
Therapy Clinic. Night calls are required 
for students assigned to IPHB, the Car- 
ter Center, and the VA Medical Center. 
In all affiliated training facilities, stu- 
dents are assigned to wards or clinics 
under the supervision of residents and 
attending/clinical faculty. 

The Brief Therapy Clinic at IPHB is 
a unique facility in which students 
serve as primary therapists under close 
faculty supervision. Students are as- 
signed a minimum of two patients 
whom they follow during the six-week 
rotation. The clinic is staffed by eight 
students per rotation. 

All students are required to attend 
the following didactic courses and con- 
ferences, which are offered on each 
Tuesday of the six-week rotation: 

Liaison/Consultation Psychiatry 
(1 hour) 

Clinical Case Conference 
(IV2 hours) 

Alcoholism and Drug Abuse 
(1 hour) 

Psychopharmacology & Patient 
Management (1 hour) 

Basic Psychiatry Review (2 hours) 

Child/Adolescent Psychiatry 
(1 hour) 

Students assigned to the inpatient 
wards of the IPHB and those of the affil- 
iated hospitals are required to attend 
ongoing clinical case conferences, ward 
meetings, staff meetings, and other 
clinical activities. 



The Department of Psychiatry offers 
elective courses in all four years of the 
medical curriculum. Elective courses 
scheduled in the Year I and Year II 
minimesters (January and June) span a 
variety of topics in behavioral sciences. 
Elective courses offered during the 
clinical years include: brief psycho- 
therapy, community psychiatry, 
emergency psychiatry and forensic psy- 
chiatry, as well as individual clinical 

Combined Accelerated 

Program in Psychiatry: CAPP 


This elective track has become na- 
tionally visible for its success in engag- 
ing students in psychiatry through an 
advanced four-year curriculum that be- 
gins in the freshman year. In addition 
to participating in the psychiatry pro- 
gram, students are required to fulfill all 
of the requirements of a standard four- 
year medical curriculum. The program 
has continued to admit 12 freshman 
students each year. From the first 
month of the freshman year, the track 
provides an unfolding progression of 
combined didactic and clinical experi- 
ences in the behavioral sciences and in 
clinical psychiatry. The completion of 
this four-year program enables the stu- 
dent to graduate from medical school 
with a foundation of knowledge and 
skills at least equivalent to that pro- 
vided by one year of traditional resi- 
dency training in psychiatry. 

A large clinical faculty is involved in 
providing didactic courses, clinical su- 
pervision, and continuing case semi- 
nars. About 30-40% of these students 
choose a career in psychiatry. 


This eight-week program, supported by 
the National Institute of Mental Health, 
is offered to the students each summer 
Students are assigned to the various 
clinical facilities of the IPHB and affili- 
ated hospitals.

The Department of Radiation Oncology 
is divided into six divisions: 1) Admin- 
istration; 2) Clinical Radiation; 3) Clini- 
cal Physics; 4) Nursing; 5) Education 
and 6) Radiation Research, representing 
the various areas of interest within this 
specialty. All are closely interrelated to 
achieve improved management of the 
cancer patient. 

The medical student is offered a 
broad exposure to oncology with em- 
phasis on the principles of radiation on- 
cology biology and physics through 
lectures, case presentations, demonstra- 
tions and participation in new patient 
and follow-up clinics. Uses and indica- 
tions of the different types of radiation 
are presented as well as the use of com- 
bined modalities in the management of 
the cancer patient 

Research Interests 

Departmental research efforts are 
focused upon many areas of oncology. 
The use of radiation as a systemic treat- 
ment agent, brachytherapy, hyperther- 
mia, microcirculation of tumors and 
fractionation schemes represent several 
departmental research projects 


Undergraduate Medical 

Third Year 

During a three-week rotation through 
radiology, radiation oncology and nu- 
clear medicine, students will spend 
three days in Radiation Oncology. A se- 
ries of lectures designed to familiarize 
students with the principles of the spe- 
cialty are given. Students also partici- 
pate in conferences and clinics. (Dr. 
Poussin and staff) 

Fourth Year 
Elective in Radiation Therapy. Stu- 
dents interested in oncology are offered 
an opportunity to participate as mem- 
bers of the radiation oncology team. 
They become familiar with the evalua- 
tion, management and follow-up of 
cancer patients. Included are treatment 
planning, dosimetry and the use of in- 
terstitial and intracavitary sources of ra- 
dionuclides. (Dr. Poussin and staff) 

Graduate Program 

An approved four-year residency pro- 
gram in therapeutic radiology is offered 
at the University of Maryland Medical 
System. Teaching is carried out through 
didactic lectures, clinics and numerous 
teaching conferences with emphasis on 
patient care, under the supervision of a 
full-time staff. Elective time is spent in 
related oncological specialties to pro- 
mote the multidisciplinary concept of 
management of patients with cancer.

The Department of Surgery is com- 
posed of six divisions: general surgery, 
neurological surgery, orthopaedic sur- 
gery, otolaryngology, thoracic and car- 
diovascular surgery and urology. The 
faculty of the various divisions partici- 
pate in the teaching of anatomy, phar- 
macology, physiology and introduction 
to clinical medicine, and do not offer 
formal courses when the students enter 
their clinical clerkships. During this 12- 
week clinical clerkship period, time is 
divided among general surgery and the 
subspecialties of orthopaedics, 
otolaryngology, and urology. Students 
may serve clerkships at the University 
of Maryland Medical System or at one 
or more of the affiliated hospitals 
(Mercy, Maryland General, Francis 
Scott Key, St. Agnes, South Baltimore 
General, Sinai, Baltimore VA Medical 

Electives in surgical research and 
summer fellowships are available to stu- 
dents in all four years. More extensive 
clinical experience with greater patient 
responsibility is offered by all divisions 
as electives to students in their fourth 

The surgical clerkships expose the 
student to disease entities which can or 
should be treated by operative inter- 
vention and to the physiologic and 
metabolic consequences of such inter- 
vention. Students learn to recognize 
conditions which will require surgical 
consultation. They gain an appreciation 
of wound care as well as familiarity 
with basic emergency procedures. This 
course of study enables the future in- 
ternist, pediatrician or psychiatrist to 
discuss with his patient the probable 
treatment and prognosis of various sur- 
gical diseases. Further, students are 
given the opportunity to explore 
various surgical disciplines and to par- 
ticipate fully in the daily activities of the 
surgical teams. 

Graduates of approved medical 
schools will be considered for residen- 
cies in general surgery, neurological 
surgery, orthopaedics, otolaryngology, 
thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, 
and urology.

Third Year 
GSUR 530. The teaching of general 
surgery is conducted in the inpatient 
environment of the University of Mary- 
land Medical System, Baltimore Vet- 
erans Administration Medical Center, 
Maryland General and Mercy Hospitals. 
Students are divided into groups of two 
or three for continuous assignment to 
individual patient areas. Upon admis- 
sion to the service, selected patients are 
assigned to individual students who are 
expected to record a complete history, 
the results of a physical examination 
and required laboratory studies. A dif- 
ferential diagnosis, final diagnosis and 
recommendations for therapy must be 
included. Operation room participation 
is encouraged but not required, but 
varies according to the interest of each 

The program is designed to give the 
student a broad overview of the funda- 
mentals of the discipline of surgery in a 
clinical environment and includes con- 
tact with a wide variety of adult and pe- 
diatric patients. This includes patients 
with infections, neoplasms, trauma, en- 
docrine disorders, vascular disease, gas- 
trointestinal problems, metabolic 
disorders and congenital defects often 
requiring extensive medical evaluation 
followed usually by surgical therapy. 

The student is responsible for core 
reading material which is identical re- 
gardless of hospital assignment. Em- 
phasis throughout the course is placed 
on problem solving through correlation 
of basic science information with clini- 
cal diagnosis and management. Atten- 
dance is required at formal lectures 
given twice weekly at clinical con- 
ferences and grand rounds. Final 
evaluation is based upon clinical per- 
formance on the various services as- 
signed, as well as a special examination 
provided by the National Board of Med- 
ical Examiners. Two four-week subin- 
ternships and five four-week electives 
must be taken. 

Fourth Year- 
Two four-week submternships and five 
four- week electives must be taken.

In the first year the staff participates in 
a combined program with the Depart- 
ment of Neurology in which correlative 
lectures and demonstrations are given 
during various basic science courses 
and applications of the neurological ex- 
amination are demonstrated. During 
the second year there is an active pro- 
gram as part of the physical diagnosis 
course in which students examine neu- 
rological patients and discuss their find- 
ings with the faculty. Lectures on 
relevant topics are also presented as 
part of the second-year pathology 

Third Year 
In the third year, each student spends 
three weeks on a combined medical 
and surgical neurology rotation in 
which lectures are combined with clini- 
cal experiences gained on the two ser- 
vices. Opportunities are provided for 
observing neurosurgical procedures and 
participating in all the functions of the 

Fourth Year 

A fourth-year elective is available in 
general neurosurgery. The participation 
of the student is increased, both in the 
operating room and in the daily perfor- 
mance of patient care. Special precep- 
torships in pediatric neurosurgery, 
neuro-oncology and neurotraumatology 
are also available. 

In all years, students are invited to 
participate in the ongoing programs of 
the neuro-oncology research labora- 
tories in the areas of blood brain barrier 
physiology, model brain tumors, tissue 
culture, microwave hyperthermia and 
chemotherapy. Students interested in 
microneurosurgery, the pathophysiol- 
ogy of spinal trauma and neurophysiol- 
ogy are welcome in the other research 
laboratories of the division.

mester electives in clinical orthopaedics 
or musculoskeletal research with indi- 
vidual members of the orthopaedic sur- 
gical faculty Projects include anatomic 
dissections with research or clinical 
value, participation in ongoing projects 
at the Maryland Orthopaedic Research 
Laboratories, or clinical experiences 
emphasizing joint reconstruction, major 
trauma, or other disorders of the mus- 
culoskeletal system. 

In addition to these electives, the 
Division of Orthopaedic Surgery pro- 
vides a lecture series which may be at- 
tended by students at any level. 

Third Year 
OSUR 530. Orthopaedic Surgery: 
University of Maryland Medical Sys- 
tem. The general principles of ortho- 
paedic surgery are taught and medical 
students are introduced to fracture rec- 
ognition and management, reconstruc- 
tive surgery of the musculoskeletal 
system, and to common outpatient con- 
ditions affecting the musculoskeletal 
system. Under supervision, they par- 
ticipate in patient diagnosis and treat- 
ment as well as surgery. All students 
receive hands-on instruction on the 
uses and application of various splints 
and casting techniques. Students prac- 
tice putting casts on and off each other 
under the supervision of the chief plas- 
ter technician. Daily student confer- 
ences and didactic sessions held by the

The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery 
offers an accredited four-year residency 
program. Clinical and surgical experi- 
ences are obtained in the toot, hand, 
tumor and chronic spine services at 
University of Maryland Hospital. The 
major trauma and spinal injury services 
are located primarily within the Mary- 
land Institute for Emergency Medical 
Services Systems, and pediatric 
orthopaedics at the James Lawrence 
Kernan Hospital. An intensive academic 
program in basic science and clinical 
orthopaedic surgery has been de- 
veloped for resident education. Stu- 
dents attend as many of these sessions 
as time allows. Each resident has a 
mandatory research assignment. Should 
a student be available and willing, he 
can volunteer to participate on one of 
these projects. Many students, espe- 
cially those who are interested in 
orthopaedic residency, have had a sig- 
nificant role in these clinical projects.

Graduate Studies 

The residency program consists of font- 
years following two prerequisite years of 
training, one of which must be in gen- 
eral surgery. Each year, two are ap- 
pointed and become co-residents at the 
end of the third year if progress in 
training has been satisfactory. The two 
PGY-3 assistant residents spend six 
months at both the University of Mary- 
land and Sinai hospitals. The PGY-4 as- 
sistant residents divide their second 
year in urology with six months each at 
the Baltimore VA Medical Center and 
Sinai Hospital. The PGY-5 (.third year) 
in urology is divided with six months in 
pediatric urology at the Johns Hopkins 
Hospital and six months in the research 
laboratory. The PGY-6 year as senior 
resident is divided into six months each 
at the University of Maryland Hospital 
and Baltimore VA Medical Center.

The University of Maryland Cancer 
Center was established by the Division 
of Cancer Treatment of the National 
Cancer Institute in 1965 as the Bal- 
timore Cancer Research Center at the 
Wyman Park U.S. Public Health Service 
Hospital. In 1974 the Center moved to 
the University of Maryland, and re- 
mained an intramural NCI program un- 
der contractual arrangement between 
the NCI and the University of Maryland 
until 1982, when it became the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Cancer Center. The 
clinical eflort of the center was estab- 
lished as a separate clinical entity 
within the University of Maryland Med- 
ical System. Formal academic status 
was granted for the Cancer Center in 
the School of Medicine as the "Program 
of Oncology" and the Cancer Center 
faculty have academic appointments in 
various clinical and basic science de- 
partments of the School of Medicine. 

The activities of the Program of On- 
cology include basic and clinical cancer 
research; student and house officer 
teaching; and a strong focus on aggres- 
sive treatment and intense patient care 
in the 53-bed inpatient and outpatient 
services of the Cancer Center. In addi- 
tion to full-time attending services on 
medical oncology and hematology. Pro- 
gram of Oncology faculty members 
provide a uniquely supportive program 
involving a multimodality approach to 
the treatment of patients with primary/ 
secondary malignancy involving the 
central nervous system and lungs as 
well as patients on the gynecological 
and surgical services of oncology, gen- 
ito-urmary, otolaryngology and neuro- 

The University of Maryland Cancer 
Center is a strong participant in new 
drug development and performs re- 
search on new anticancer drugs. Vir- 
tually every important drug in use in 
oncology today has been tested in this 
program, and the center has contracts 
in both the public and private sectors 
with a commitment to clinical and labo- 
ratory research. Pilot studies and 
Phases I, II and III Trials are conducted 
which run the gamut from testing 
efficacy and potential applicability of a 
given treatment program and establish- 
ing dose and toxicity limitations of new 
drugs to comparing treatment programs 
for superiority of treatment, toxicity 
and outcome. These studies tend to be 
definitive treatment programs which 
have major impact on the practice of 
oncology nationwide. The faculty has a 
strong commitment to intennstitutional 
cooperative scientific trials and cancer 

The Cancer Center's Laboratory of 
Immunology Research generated safety 
and elficacy data that played a key part 
in obtaining FDA approval for clinical 
use of genetically engineered recombi- 
nant alpha interferon. Since 1982 the 
Cancer Center has played an important 
role in studies of acquired immunodefi- 
ciency syndrome and related disorders. 

Students and residents participate 
in weekly grand rounds and con- 
ferences, and students are encouraged 
to become involved in research 


International Centers for Medical Re- 
search were created under the auspices 
of the National Institutes of Health and 
in accordance with objectives of the In- 
ternational Health Research Act of 1960 
to advance the status of international 
health. Congress expressed the hope for 
establishment of a program through 
United States universities for the early 
development of research and research 
training centers with adequate field op- 
portunities for international studies. 

Such a center was established at the 
University of Maryland School of Medi- 
cine in March 1961, to conduct scien- 
tific programs both in Baltimore and 
abroad in Lahore, Pakistan. While the 
federal program sponsoring these cen- 
ters ceased in 1980, the University of 
Maryland continued its activities both 
in Lahore and in Baltimore until 1985. 
Currently, the program has developed 
research and teaching contracts in 
country-wide planning and service in

The School of Medicine offers the Medi- 
cal Technology Program on the UMAB 
campus. Students complete two years of 
preprofessional course work prior to be- 
ginning their studies at UMAB. During 
their two years in the professional cur- 
riculum, students are trained in the 
latest scientific techniques such as im- 
munoassay and computer-interfaced 
methodologies and develop competence 
in the use of high-tech instrumentation. 
Students learn to interpret the signifi- 
cance of laboratory results with respect 
to health and disease. Those who suc- 
cessfully complete the program are 
awarded the Bachelor of Science degree 
in medical technology and a certificate 
of completion. 


The rapidly increasing sophistica- 
tion of the technologies employed in 
the laboratory setting has created a de- 
mand for individuals with extensive 
preparation in both the theoretical and 
applied aspects of laboratory science. 
The medical technology curriculum en- 
sures that students acquire uniformly 
strong backgrounds in important tech- 
nical concepts and procedures while 
also providing the opportunity for stu- 
dents to obtain a broad liberal arts 

To be eligible for consideration, ap- 
plicants must have completed at least 
60 semester hours of academic prepara- 
tion exclusive of health and physical 
education, and have a 2.0 overall grade 
point average as well as a 2.0 grade 
point average in science and math 
courses. Applicants should take the Al- 
lied Health Professions Admissions Test
